The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has launched a redesigned website for subscribers and non-subscribers, focused on showcasing more local news, breaking news and in-depth and investigative journalism.
As part of the redesign, AJC.com will become the news organization’s sole website in 2019. The subscriber-only website, MyAJC.com, which launched in 2013, was discontinued on Jan. 3. The redesign offers readers a faster website that is mobile-friendly with a more modern look that is easier to navigate.
“Our decision to move to one website was guided by our readers,” said Editor Kevin Riley. “The site allows us to continue to lead the way in Atlanta with credible breaking, local and investigative news – the quality journalism that our readers trust from us online.”
“I am also very excited that this new look – our first major redesign in five years – provides enhanced functionality and a better reading experience especially for those viewing our content on mobile devices, where most online news is consumed,” he said.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is the largest local media brand in metro Atlanta and AJC.com is one of the largest local media websites in the country. Subscribers will continue to have access to everything on AJC.com, including exclusive access to the ePaper, the convenient online edition of the daily print newspaper along with digital-only special sections. Users can also access AJC.com content through social media and our email newsletters.
The website will continue to offer top news headlines and engaging local columns. Updated features include highlighting content that our readers value such as our online County by County news section; the ability to comment on articles through a Facebook account; and links to the top local stories of the day and the latest stories, photos, and videos that have been posted.
The newspaper will offer a fresh local perspective in its coverage of national news, and maintain its commitment to statewide political coverage, folding content that had appeared under Politically Georgia into a new Georgia Politics section on AJC.com. Entertainment coverage will appear as part of AJC Things To Do on AJC.com. Sports coverage will focus on major Atlanta sports teams on AJC.com.
“Having all our content within one website eliminates confusion and allows us to remain a top online news source keeping our readers informed, connected and up-to-date in one place – AJC.com,” said Riley.
The redesign is part of the newspaper’s overall growth strategy and will offer even better opportunities for local advertisers to reach the ever-growing digital audience.
Riley said the news organization will continue its commitment to journalism that provides credible reporting, compelling investigations and complete details in the print newspaper seven days a week.
