New Sun website launches today

Published 11:12 am Monday, October 3, 2016

The Winchester Sun’s online presence gets a makeover starting today, with a brand new website designed to be simpler and more user-friendly.

“Our new website is more user-friendly, and updates show up much faster than before as the site is built on the powerful WordPress engine,” Winchester Sun Editor Whitney Leggett said. “We’re particularly excited about the users’ ability to contribute to community calendars, so anyone who wants to know what’s going on tonight or over the weekend can find out with a quick glance.”

In addition to the new look, The Winchester Sun is getting a new e-edition — which will be free for anyone to use for one week — and a new app that will allow subscribers to view each day’s newspaper in high resolution right on their smartphone or tablet.

“These new and improved services will make local news even more accessible for readers,” Publisher Larry Hensley said. “We invite you to try out the new e-edition for yourself and let us know what you think.”

Current subscribers will be quickly transitioned to the new e-edition service and should not see any interruption in the arrival of their newspapers thanks to the week of free access.

The new website is online now at www.winchestersun.com.
