Our supporters expected easy access to their favorite radio programs, and we needed to work with a local web design firm that could make it happen.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
In an effort to enhance listener access to important public affairs and arts programs online, Fox Web Creations recently developed a new website for Kansas City’s local community radio station, KKFI 90.1 FM. A savvy and simplified new web design took shape after KKFI 90.1 listeners demanded better ways to stay informed while on the go. User-friendly improvements on the new website prove that Kansas City’s local community radio favorite for talk, can really listen.
“We heard our listeners loud and clear," said KKFI 90.1 Director of Development and Marketing, Warren Maus. "Our supporters expected easy access to their favorite radio programs, and we wanted to work with a local web design firm that could make it happen." An established firm specializing in web design in Kansas City made it happen. Fox Web Creations offered unique website creations, and the improved site offers listeners new ways to keep up with their favorite programs.
Visitors to the new website will be invited to “Listen Now,” an improved option that allows listeners to stream live and recorded programs directly from a web browser without opening a media player. The new feature also supports mobile browsers, allowing busy listeners to easily access radio anytime, from anywhere. Listenership on mobile devices has doubled in the past year, and will continue to grow with improved access through “Listen Now.”
Those who aren’t able to “Listen Now” can listen later. With the addition of podcasts on the website, catching up on past public affairs and arts programs is simple and convenient. Podcasts are archived on the website and available for download to an iPod or MP3 player.
Same local community radio, new online style. Visitors to the new website will also notice a sleek navigation bar, updated drop-down menus, and layout changes to the “Program Episode” page and the “Program” page. An updated “Featured Episodes” section is prominently displayed on the homepage above the fold, a design element aimed to minimize scrolling and maximize content.
“We are extremely proud of our new website,” said Matt Quinn, member of the board of directors. “We were also thrilled to support the unique website creations of a local design firm -- a leader in web design in Kansas City. It’s important to build strong community partnerships here in Kansas City.”
