Our Week In The Web: February 5, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

Good news, friends! For months — nay, perhaps years — we've promised you that a new website was on the way, and that we also hoped to eventually create a newsletter. This week, we did both! The beta version of the ongoing resdeign of our parent station's website, WBUR.org, finally hit the world wide web, and our newsletter — featuring On Point's news analyst Jack Beatty's interpretations of the final days of New Hampshire Presidential Primary campaigning — is ready for you to subscribe. These are both works in progress and it's important for us to know how you feel about them. Does something not work on the site? Tell us about it! Are you looking for a different sort of content in our newsletter! Let us know! Our broadcasts, digital content and media delivery services are only useful if they meet your needs and interests, and we strive to work in that direction each and every day. So visit the beta site (full launch soon to come). And sign up for our newsletter!
