Welcome To The New KUNC.org
Your support of KUNC does a lot more than just make sure the radio stays on the air. Your support also brings you in-depth local news, quality writing, photography and innovative stories.
Today we're giving all of that a major upgrade. Let's take a tour shall we?
Along with our partners at NPR Digital Services, we're introducing a new streaming player and a new design for KUNC.org. All this new paint and spackle makes sure you can get what you're looking for, on any screen, regardless of the device.
New Streaming Player: Reading KUNC And Listening To KUNC Are No Longer Separated
See that new play button up top? Go press play...
Did you know we produce news you can read too? Traditionally, listening to the news we put on the radio and reading the news on the website have been two separate activities. We're calling this new streaming player the "persistent player" - meaning that once you click play, you can surf around KUNC.org and read stories and NOT interrupt your listening. Click play and suddenly want to look at cute pictures of boreal toads? Not a problem. Want to check the schedule? Go do that.
We're really excited about it. Get started right now by clicking the play button.
Mobile, Computer, TV, Viewscreen On The Enterprise – Whatever, Wherever
The new KUNC.org has been designed to be responsive. It's all the rage these days online. Basically, it means the site can adapt to what ever screen you want to read or listen to KUNC from. We've especially been paying attention to the mobile phone experience, since we're all so completely hooked on them now.
Stories Are Very, Very Pretty
Pictures are bigger, text is cleaner and easier to read, and we've added some whitespace so everything can breath. We know a whole bunch of design-types, they assure us we're speaking about this correctly and that whitespace is a "great thing."
It all adds up to stories that are more informative. That feel bigger. That bring Colorado right to you. Here's some of our favorites:
- Craft Crazy Colorado Looks To A New Obsession: Sour Beers
- What 13,000 Dead Grasshoppers Can Tell Us About Climate Change
- Denver's School Of Botanic Art Teaches Students To See Nature With Fresh Eyes
- This Is What A Lego CU-Boulder Looks Like
- The Uncanny Tale Of PTC No. 6, Kit Carson's Carousel
- Arid Adversity Of Prairie Life Has Yet To Erase Keota, Colorado
There's a lot more to explore here at KUNC.org. Take a look around. Try things out - and if you find a way to break something? Well, that's alright too. That's half the fun of something new. Leave us your thoughts in the comments or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
