AOL today launched a completely revamped version of AOL News that adopts an innovative blog format, combining traditional news sources, AOL programming and social news, all in an easy-to-use single-page experience.
The new AOL News sites combines traditional news, with AOL programming, user generated news, and social news tools to create a comprehensive source of news and information. This new, interactive experience engages news consumers in a real-time dialogue about the latest news and debate of the day.
“News habits have changed, and AOL News is the first site designed from the ground up to appeal to todayâ€™s online news consumer,” said Lewis Dâ€™Vorkin, SVP of AOL News & Sports. “Unlike other news portal sites, AOL News leverages the increasingly popular blog format, drawing on a wide rage of news sources to provide consumers quick access to the top stories and related pictures, videos, polls. We believe that AOL News will set the standard for other major online news sites.”
AOL News attracts more than 19 million unique visitors a month, according to comScore Media Metrix.
