All-new KVPR.org website debuts
Together with the launch of the new KVPR logo, November 17th also marked another big milestone for the station, the launch of an all new KVPR.org. The new website, features major behind-the-scenes upgrades as well as improved layout and features for users.
This is the first full-rebuild of the site in nine years, and the new site will bring a better user experience for mobile users, and a host of features and functions that weren’t available previously. The new site is built on a platform shared by around 100 public radio stations nationwide and managed by NPR’s Digital Services division.
“We’re thrilled to bring our listeners a site that features the latest technology. There were a lot of limitations with the previous site we had, and this new site will give our reporters and the rest of our content team new opportunities and much more flexibility to display their work in creative and new ways,” says KVPR President and General Manager Joe Moore.
The project has been nearly a year in the making, but despite the changes, all of the station’s content from the last decade has made the move over to the new KVPR.org. The new site features improve layout and a better user experience for mobile users, better support for podcasts and easier access to on-demand audio. It also has a cleaner design and an easy to use interface. The clean, contemporary design of the new KVPR logo is incorporated into the site with fresh colors and presentation throughout.
