If you are one of the countless people who depend on WXXI for your news and analysis, then I have an exciting announcement. WXXI has launched WXXINews.org, a new Web site that makes local news content more accessible for you. We have been collaborating with with NPR over the past several months and are now one of the first public broadcasting stations in the country to adopt this innovative approach to accessing news online. Aside from vital local and national content, the site includes an updated, user-friendly interface that promises visitors a more enriched and informed experience. You can explore audio clips, news photos and video, as well as share news content with friends through social media, and comment on stories. You can check it out here at WXXInews.org and, if you haven't already done so, I encourage you to sign up to have WXXI's Daily News Update delivered to your e-mail address each weekday morning.
The launch of this new site is just another example of WXXI's commitment to provide vital, in-depth local news for our community. In recognizing the demands of today's online news user to read, listen, watch, and engage, we are proud to bring the same trusted information you get from NPR and the WXXI news team to a new, rich, and easily-accessible environment. WXXI is dedicated to delivering thoughtful, thorough reporting every day whether on-air or online and I look forward to any feedback you might have on your experience with WXXINews.org.
