New look for award-winning newspaper website

The Belfast Telegraph has unveiled a new-look website with a range of improvements to make it easier for readers to use.

The Northern Ireland daily launched the revamped site earlier this month which aims to have a better layout and presentation of stories.

The site has introduced more photo galleries, video clips and interactive graphics to help bring stories to life and is increasing coverage of local events in its What’s On guide.

It also aims to have better integration with social media tools, an enhanced search engine and a cleaner design.

Announcing the new-look site to readers, online editor Jerome Crolly said: “This is a very exciting time for Belfast Telegraph and the new look is a demonstration of our commitment to innovating and improving our online service – in a way that reflects the changing requirements of our audience.

“In tandem with the site redesign, there will be fresh focus on creating a more enriched experience on web, mobile and tablets, reinforcing our position as the leading cross-platform publisher in Northern Ireland.”

New sections will also be introduced to the site in the coming months.

An article about the redesign said: “The Belfast Telegraph’s award winning website has just got better – with new improved design, layout and presentation of stories.

“ will continue to deliver the first class news coverage you have come to expect – the site is now a lot easier to use…easier for you to read …easier to find the stories you are looking for …easier for you to comment …easier to share your favourite content.”

The site has previously won a number of industry awards including the Regional News Site of the Year 2012 in the Online Media Awards and was named the Digital News Service of the Year 2010 by the Newspaper Society.

    Bout time! The old one was ancient in website-terms looking tired, cluttered and unimaginative.

    Now it looks just like every other one.
