Last week, we launched a redesign of the Glendale News-Press' website. It was a "soft launch," meaning we didn't make a big deal about it.
This is not because we're not happy with the results; the opposite is true. I'm extremely proud of what we've done. The new site truly combines the power of the print and online editions: similar to the paper itself in look and feel, but with all the speed and flexibility of online.
I want to recognize Web Editor Jamie Wetherbe, who has done a tremendous job leading this project. Her handiwork has resulted in a crisp and clean look, uncluttered with illogical categories and unnecessary links. Once all the features are in place, the site will be many times better than it was before.
