NewsChannel 11's Web Site Gets a New Look

Coverage you can count on has a new look, on-line. As you may have already noticed, we have redone our website, kcbd.com, to bring you more news, weather and sports.

When coming to getting South Plains' news Michael Thomann says he goes to kcbd.com.

Thomann says he uses it to, "Check on the news of various things and community bulletins."

Now, Thomann is logging onto something new. He says the design has changed.

 It is a design that gives you more news, weather and sports.

KCBD Marketing Manager Josh Young says, "We treat kcbd.com as our second TV station and recently did a bit of research of what our viewers want, took those findings and basically redesigned our home page."

So what does a face-lift to kcbd.com mean for you? When you log on your First Alert Weather, local and national news are on the top of the web page. In addition, you can see the top stories of the day on our new high quality video player with just a click of the mouse.

"A big goal of ours was to get more content on the homepage. You will notice that we have five different tabs at the top, Weather, News, HealthWise and some other things up there. And each of those is five stories deep."

 Local and national stories are located in the middle of the page and updated throughout the day.

When news breaks, stories are posted just above your First Alert Weather. Something that Thomann says, keeps him clicking on to kcbd.com

"A website like KCBD would be the local news number one and national news number two," Thomann said.

 Some more features of kcbd.com are our breaking news emails and KCBDToGo.com. To sign up for our breaking news emails, just enter your email, select breaking news and hit submit.

You can also get a version of our website at KCBDToGo.com free on any internet ready cell phone.
