WBIR to unveil new website tonight

Tonight (or is it technically tomorrow morning) at 3 a.m. WBIR will debut its new website.

And no, this is not in response to the Knoxville News Sentinel. In fact, both outlets had planned to do this months ago, but, you know, stuff happens.

Besides, despite what a bunch of local know-it-alls think, we're not putting up a pay wall.

Anyhoo, from what I understand (you know I really don't pay attention to this tech stuff), it's supposed to look like USA Today, which you can find right smack here. It's certainly a different look, but better than what we have now.

The new site will allow us to highlight the most important news of the day, blah, blah, etc. Also, from what I understand, we'll be able to "stack" stories, meaning they won't drop off so quickly as new stories go online.

My colleagues will have more information out later, and they'll probably be able to explain this better than I just did. They'll also have some navigation tricks.

As always, straight from the heart. With maybe a kick in the groin.
