Seven years ago, we launched NewsWorks.org. We built a newsroom of talented reporters and editors, web producers, photographers, videographers, and more. It wasn’t long before the site became one of the Philadelphia region’s most respected online news sources. Hundreds of thousands of users came to us each month.
But frankly, there also has been confusion. NewsWorks built a strong following, but too few knew that we belonged to an even more trusted organization — WHYY — also home of NPR and PBS.
So on Monday, Oct. 9, we launch the new WHYY.org, and NewsWorks.org becomes WHYY News. Different name, new location, same great reporting — and a beautiful, newly designed website. You’ll find stories from the same WHYY reporters you got to know from NewsWorks. Even better, you will find an engaging site with stories that are easy to find. And whether you love “The Pulse,” Keystone Crossroads, PlanPhilly, State Impact, “Radio Times,” or daily news from Philadelphia, Delaware, and South Jersey, it’s all part of WHYY News.
We hope you like the improvements. Let us know what you think.
Sandra Clark is WHYY’s vice president for news.
