“Historical Advance” For The Post

The Birmingham Post has relaunched its website with promises of breaking news, great debate and analysis.

Among the new features are an impressive range of blogs covering topics from news to lifestyle to business.

The Post has recruited bloggers from outside the newsroom too with a local lawyer and a China-based English teacher offering their thoughts via new blogs.

Joining the bloggers is editor Marc Reeves, as reported here in February, who says the website represents “a truly historical advance” for the 150-year-old newspaper.

Reeves writes on the blog: “From now on, all the insight, news and analysis you have rightly come to expect from us is just a click away every minute of the day.

“We’ll be breaking news and bringing you information on your sector of interest that you just can’t get anywhere else - and even more than you can get in the newspaper."

He adds: “Our roster of knowledgeable and provocative bloggers will ensure the Post’s reputation as a home for argument and debate live on into the digital age.”

The unveiling follows last month’s relaunch of the website of sister paper the Birmingham Mail [Mail Aims To Be Midlands Portal].

Further information on the relaunch can be found at journalism.co.uk and holdthefrontpage.co.uk.
