Ex­plore The Cov­ing­ton News’ new web­site

The Covington News - - LOCAL - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­news.com

The Cov­ing­ton News has a new dig­i­tal home.

Be­gin­ning Fri­day, users can see the all-new Cov­News.com at the beta site anvil.cov­news.com.

“We are ex­cited to en­hance our dig­i­tal pres­ence,” News Ed­i­tor Jackie Gutknecht said. “With the growth of on­line jour­nal­ism and the chang­ing dig­i­tal age, we have been work­ing to build a web­site that fits with the times.”

Cov­News.com reaches an av­er­age of 100,000 unique users each month, ac­cord­ing to Google Ana- lyt­ics. The United States Cen­sus Bureau es­ti­mates the pop­u­la­tion of New­ton County at just over 105,000.

The new site fea­tures a re­spon­sive de­sign to any screen or de­vice, in­fi­nite scrolling, faster load times and en­hanced fea­tures for im­age and video dis­play.

“Our read­ers have been beg­ging for a new web­site for quite some time,” Gutknecht said. “We are happy to fi­nally be able to pro­vide them with this prod­uct.”

The beta site will al­low feed­back from the com­mu­nity be­fore the of­fi­cial launch. Any feed­back or site im­prove­ment sug­ges­tions should be di­rected to news@cov­news. com. Fu­ture de­vel­op­ments to The

Cov­ing­ton News’ dig­i­tal plat­form will be re­leased through­out the year. Af­ter a trial pe­riod with the beta site, anvil.cov­news.com, the new site will go live. Once live, the URL will re­main cov­news.com.
