Core Publisher

As you can see, Michigan Radio took home armfuls of Michigan Associated Press awards last weekend. And among them, first place for best non-commercial radio website. For the second year in a row, by the way.

Here’s what the judges had to say: “Nice to land directly on a site that shouts news. One-stop shopping for headlines and in depth coverage. Very robust.”

Are you looking to change your current CMS or are you on the PI Platform? Check out Core Publisher.

Note: If you are a Public Platform, Newsroom, or Arts user, we will need to migrate you to Core Publisher by the end of September 2012, as NPR Digital Services will no longer support these modules.

NPR Digital Services announced Thursday the release of a new home page layout available to Core Publisher stations.

The new modular home page offers stations: 

  • 3 column page layout
  • More flexibility over home page layout
  • Custom blocks for curated featured content
  • Multiple ways to promote content and station initiatives
  • The ability to preview changes before publishing

Here are the slides presented during Thursday's webinar:

Thanks for Nathan from KUT News in Austin, TX for the enthusiastic heads-up on this!

Google recently introduced the ability for businesses and brands to create Google+ (Google Plus) pages, and we suggest that all stations take advantage of this opportunity to connect with users and promote content. This is a great new tool that can prove to be very powerful in gathering and interacting with your listeners and community.
