Blackburn Radio Inc. Launches Redesigned BlackburnNews.com

blackburnnews[London, Ontario] – Blackburn Radio Inc. launched a redesigned version of its popular local news destination BlackburnNews.com on Monday, September 9th.

BlackburnNews.com has been designed to better serve the increasing viewership who visit the website on a mobile device (upwards of 35% of visitors), providing a more simplified method to access on-demand local content.

“We’ve reworked BlackburnNews.com to better meet the needs of our on-the-go audience, whether it’s for up-to-the minute alerts, local headlines or even school bus cancellations,” says Scott Kitching, News Director for BlackburnNews.com’s London office. “Londoners can now easily access local news on-demand from anywhere with an iPhone, Android or Blackberry.”

The redesign follows a similar mobile-focused relaunch of the company’s 12 station sites in March of 2013 – providing the platform for continued gains in local audience and revenue.
