Attention Arkansas Media Watchers: Arkansas News Bureau columnist John Brummett has been dropping teasers for weeks that the Stephens Media-owned bureau will soon be launching a revamped website to replace their current offering, which, though serviceable, is pretty staid and stale and only updates once a day.
Well, now, what would you say if I told you that, for a probably limited time, The Arkansas Project can provide you a glimpse of the new site? Click here for the preview. I say “limited time” because I’m pretty sure they’re going to shut down access to this link soon, so take a look while you can if you can’t wait for the virtual ribbon cutting. (Update: OK, as of 9 p.m., it appears that they’ve locked us out of that link, so you’ll just have to make do with the screenshots below.)
A snappy new logo and tagline (“Your source for everything Arkansas”)!
Built on the WordPress platform, just like The Arkansas Project!
Links to blogs and other Stephens publications!
More: Images! Reader comments! Video! Reader polls! RSS feeds! Social bookmarking tools!
And once that link’s gone, you can at least get a feel for it by reviewing these screenshots of the homepage that I captured (click images for larger versions):
