The New Redesigned City-County Observer

first_img Welcome To The New, Streamlined City-County Observer.A GOOD EGG IS HATCHED!We are pleased to be offering a cleaner layout, with informational headlines to our regular features. We are now more reader-friendly than ever before, and you can now print copies of our articles. We are especially proud to have the ability to post as many as six “breaking news” articles at one time.A section on local events that our readers may want to know about and expanding our reporting on local sports beyond the regular basketball and baseball coverage have been added to our regular lineup. “Hot Jobs” will be another new offering to our readers, and we will have a weekly positive profile of a member of the community that we want to recognize for their contributions to the quality of life in the Evansville area.While we are excited about our newly-expanded format, we will be keeping our basic mission to inform, educate, and entertain and to do it cost-free to the readers. “Is It True” will be offered on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through a link provided in the online edition. Readers can also access our forums through the link. Rest assured that our readers, their thoughts and comments remain a valued part of CCO. We will continue to offer the public a chance to keep their identities confidential as the tell us their thoughts, because we understand that there are some people who are in a position that makes it necessary to maintain anonymity. As always, we want to hear what the public believes is important to improving our community whether it is done under a person’s own name or a pseudonym. We only ask that you avoid making personal attacks on other posters and stay on topic. The Open Forum will be available through the link to IIT, so we will continue to offer an outlet for your own concerns or “rants”. Our highly-prized “Moles” will continue to give us news before it breaks in other sources, as well.The primary reason for making our most popular features available through an easy to use link is that we want to appeal to a wider range of readers and advertisers. By taking the most controversial part of CCO out of the main body of the publication, we are seeking to reach that part of the community who may be offended by some of our more outspoken fans. We are opening the door to growing our publication, its audience, and advertisers, while keeping it free to the public. We see a growing need for that service, and we plan to continue to offer it. Our advertisers will be pleased to see that the new format will be offering a lot of “bang”for their advertising buck. As a part of our continued commitment to “home-owned and homegrown” local businesses, we can offer small businesses with small advertising budgets an opportunity to spread the word of their goods and services throughout the area. Larger businesses will have the chance to keep in touch with their customers at a reasonable cost.We are excited to take a new step to a print Monthly edition of the CCO and to making our online version appeal to more readers. Even more, we are proud to be the only local news outlet to inform, educate, and entertain our readers at no cost to them, and to let them offer their opinions under whatever conditions they may choose.FOOTNOTE: We still have a few issues to workout.  Thanks for reading the City County Observer.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
