The Washington Times-affiliated website Times247.com has won an EPPY Award award for best home page for sites drawing fewer than 1 million unique monthly visitors.
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.
"Innovation is what 21st-century newspapering has to be about, so we are proud to be a part of this new digital venture, Times247," said Washington Times Corporate Editor Robert Morton, who has overseen the website from its inception. "But the newspaper business has always been and still is about service to readers. The Times247 team is dedicated to providing Washington Times readers what they need and want: a 24/7 service of the best news and opinion breaking news."
"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."
