The Front Blog Retires!

with one comment

Well it’s been a good run for The Front Blog. It was created out of a need to communicate in a more flexible, immediate manner than our content management system for news allowed. We’ve used the blog to announce the past two election cycles, all-night emergency updates, to introduce you to new music and great books, to give you the news in under a minute. We’re pleased to announce that these great features will continue on our new, expanded content management system, using NPR Digital Services’ Core Publisher platform, which you can browse here:

news.wkms.org

The new platform is not unlike the blog-style format we enjoyed here on “The Blog.” And better yet, it merges the content produced here and in the News Room into a more concise, user-friendly format. The Morning Cram and Datebook are some our favorite features created for the web, and we’ll continue to post them every day on news.wkms.org. We’re also introducing Afternoon Update, creating a more complete round-up of news produced by WKMS. We want the new site to be as interactive as possible, so commenting will soon be added to all of our news stories and cultural content. Check out the new site, let us know what you think. We appreciate the feedback!

  1. I enjoyed reading thefrontblog a lot over the past months. However, I am not too sad, WKMS is looking great. Guess I’ll be visiting that one from now on.

    If I could possible leave any feedback, it would be relating the looks of the site. I am personally not a big fan of the logo, and I am not too sure about the background, I would probably stick with the white design that thefrontblog has, as it pleasant to read. Good luck with wkms!
