Tribune launches new, innovative website

Wanting to give our readers a more convenient, easier-to- navigate site, the Mobridge Tribune has launched a new website.
The staff of the Tribune has researched various sites and company providers that would allow the Tribune’s information to be more readily available and easier to access.
The new website offers the best local news coverage and advertiser information with easier access to the Tribune E-edition, Reminder and special sections. It is built for easier navigation and has a more user-friendly format to enable the readers to check local and regional sports scores and community information.
Links to Mobridge-Pollock home games live streamed by the Tribune are also easily accessible on the site.
“We know that in today’s news environment, it’s important to provide area news and information in whatever form our readers desire, and that means we must have both robust print and online/mobile models,” said Larry Atkinson, owner/publisher of Bridge City Publishing. “Our old website and mobile versions were not providing the best possible experience for our readers, so we started looking at what was available and how we could adapt it for our readers. What we found was both a very powerful website and mobile version that we feel our online readers will love. We worked with the provider of the service for a number of months, tweaking it until we felt it was the best it could be. We launched the new service this week and hope you like it.”
Atkinson said the new website has a number of new features and the new mobile version is much easier to read on both cell phones and tablets.
“We hope you’ll explore both versions,” he said. “Our plan is to continue adding new features as we go and we welcome your comments and ideas. Please contact us by email, phone, mail or by stopping into our office. We’d love to hear from you. All of the contact information is available on our website by clicking the contact link.”
The Tribune’s webmaster is currently working on an updated events calendar and an interactive business directory map to complete the new website. Area residents can update calendar information by submitting local events throughout the link on the site. There are also plans for future expansion of new features in the near future.
“We hope you find the new website with a fresh look, easy to access information and we also wish to establish this portal as a source of information for those who visit our site,” said Bridge City Publishing Manager Linda Meyer.  “I would like to thank everyone on our staff at the Mobridge Tribune who donated their time and energy to make this site what it is. If you have any questions, suggestions, feedback or comments, please email me at linda@mobridgetribune.com.”
