Tell us what you think about our refreshed homepage
Reuters.com is getting a new look. The beta version of the refreshed home page has gone live.
You can get to it by clicking a button on the homepage of the current site. Once you’re there, we encourage you to let us know what you think. Feel free to drop us suggestions below or tweet us ideas using #reutersrefresh .
For now, only the homepage will feature the new look, so don’t be thrown when you go back to the current design as you venture deeper into the site. When we switch over officially in a few weeks the new design will run across Reuters.com.
The main goal of this refresh is to display more of our terrific content and to provide a clearer snapshot of top news stories.
The refresh is just the beginning of Editor in Chief Steve Adler’s pledge to develop a powerful consumer-facing digital presence for Reuters News. In recent weeks, we’ve added some brilliant new journalists to our already terrific team: two-time Pulitzer prize winner David Rohde, who will be writing a column starting in the autumn; the iconic Sir Harry Evans, whose events and writing will be featured on Reuters.com; Pulitzer-prize-winner and tax guru David Cay Johnson, some of whose work for Professional will be showcased on the site; social media innovator Anthony De Rosa, who joins us from the technology group; Ryan McCarthy, the Huffington Post’s pioneering business editor; and deputy op-ed editor Paul Smalera, who joined us from Fortune.com. We have also recently added monthly columns from former Treasury Secretary and Harvard President Larry Summers and PIMCO CEO Mohamed El-Erian to our growing op-ed line-up.
Sprucing up the homepage should help make the work of all of our new and old stars — and everything we do at Reuters — more visible. But it is just a small step in our broader effort to make Reuters.com and all of our digital platforms a fitting showcase for Reuters News and all of Thomson Reuters. Watch this space.
