NorthJersey.com will display more content and make it easier for users to find what they want
Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
North Jersey Media Group (http://www.northjersey.com), the largest local news and information resource in northern New Jersey, has launched a brand-new user-focused Web site. NorthJersey.com has undergone a significant makeover, including an improved user interface, enhanced video and photo display and more content from The Record, Herald News and various community newspapers.
Previously The Record (Bergen County, NJ) and Herald News (Passaic County, NJ) operated independent Web sites. This redesign has consolidated the content from both these award-winning daily newspapers on NorthJersey.com. In early 2009, content from the company's community newspapers will also be available on the site, further expanding the depth of NorthJersey.com's local coverage. NorthJersey.com has become the region's largest news-gathering operation.
The new Web site offers navigation options allowing visitors to organize the site's offerings by specific topic, town, or town clusters. More detailed page content is available, as well as additional advertising positions. The deeper home page has an enhanced wide-screen photo rotator, along with more prominent display of photos and videos of the day from around the region and around the world.
Mike Ciullo, Vice President of Interactive Media, explained that NJMG had conducted an in-depth analysis of how NorthJersey.com's existing audience was utilizing the site and then developed better methods for navigation and information display. "NorthJersey.com will display more content and make it easier for users to find what they want," Ciullo said. "Regrouping navigation and streamlining media on the home page provides a stronger visual presentation and ease of use."
North Jersey Media Group, the parent company of NorthJersey.com, has been a source for local breaking news, sports, lifestyle and community features and classified advertising for North Jersey residents for more than three generations. NJMG remains an independent, family-owned printing, publishing and Internet company, publisher of The Record and Herald News and 46 community newspapers covering five counties in North Jersey. Its magazine group produces the elegant and popular (201) magazine and (201) Bride, among other titles. The company's Internet Division operates news, advertising and community Web sites providing online editions, services and information from all of NJMG's publications.
