The Washington Times launches new Times247.com site
Question of the Day
The Washington Times has launched a new digital news site, Times247.com, which will provide a continuously updated blend of news, opinion and analysis from The Times combined with thoughtfully selected content from the nation's top news sources to an audience who shares conservative values.
The news service will be distributed digitally to millions of opted-in readers and available over the Internet on a 24/7 basis. Users can choose the site's richly designed home page or "The Skinny" section featuring breaking news headlines "without the filler."
"The addition of Times247.com provides a unique new means of delivering top news and opinion from The Washington Times combined with curated conservative content to targeted audiences throughout the United States." said Thomas McDevitt, president of The Washington Times.
"A strong feature of Times247.com is the ability to customize the curated content for our affinity partners," he said.
The company's original website — www.washingtontimes.com — is among the most visited national newspaper websites with outstanding news, opinion, sports and exclusive content. The creation of Times247.com will augment this robust digital channel.
Robert Morton, who headed the development of Times247.com, will serve as the senior editor.
"Nearly 30 years after the first edition of The Washington Times came off the presses, this service will serve our expanding national and global audiences on a real-time basis with the news and opinion they need," Mr. Morton said. "We are not looking for visitors for Times247.com; we want long-term residents."
Dean Honeycutt, a 25-year veteran editor at The Washington Times, serves as the managing editor of Times247.com, heading up a team of talented digital journalists who hand-select content for publication.
"We are very excited to participate in the launch of this unique project," said Larry Ward, president of Political Media Inc. and technical project leader who worked with The Washington Times to create the site. "Times247.com fuses the best elements of digital news that the world has to offer: state-of-the-art technology and thoughtfully curated content, along with rapid, continuous news updates."
"Times247.com has received very positive marks from advertisers for its ability to reach an expanded audience and as a means of creating curated content that expands the messaging capabilities on the site for advertisers, associations and groups," said Thomas Culligan, chief revenue and marketing officer of The Washington Times.
