EDITORIAL: A new day for new beginnings

It has been a very exhausting, yet exhilarating couple of weeks for the staff at the Williams Lake Tribune/Weekend Advisor.

As the always evolving world of the Internet expands, it has changed the media environment completely.

No longer are the five work day weeks that began with a morning coffee and a typewriter at 8 a.m. and packing up and saying good evening to your co-workers at 5 p.m.

Time sure has changed and we realize that we had too as well.

Today we have launched our brand new media website totally redesigned from the bottom up.

Our loyal readers and followers will find an easy to use format and many, many extra features.

Today, our website will be viewed in the same format not only on your PC but, as well as on your tablet and iPhone.

To our valued advertising clients, they can be assured of a much greater value and reach.

Live broadcasts and video interviews will be a mainstream component as we bring you to breaking news, community events and feature stories.

We value your trust in us as we provide you real and accurate reporting.

I would like to invite you all to check out our brand new website at www.wltribune.com and let us know what you think.

I personally would like to thank the wonderful community of Williams Lake and surrounding area for letting us into your homes for the past 87 years.

My staff and I promise to give you journalism with integrity plus provide the most comprehensive level of news in the Cariboo.

The Williams Lake Tribune/Weekend Advisor: Any Time. Any Place. Any Device.
