Telegraph Relaunch Opens The Archives
The new website for the Coventry Telegraph is balancing old and new with a blogging network and nostalgia archive.
Published by Trinity Mirror, the newspaper says its new website boasts an “immense” collection of historical photographs uploaded from its picture library.
The extensive gallery section has photos categorised by theme from Coventry cathedrals, to the Bard, and the Blitz.
Editor Alan Kirby told holdthefrontpage.co.uk: “Of course, the new website is about breaking news and sport but our historic picture archives are immense and offer a unique glimpse into Coventry’s past.
“There are thousands of pictures which we could never hope to publish in the paper. Our website gives us a fantastic new outlet.”
And on the new side, the website has a network of blogs, including David Bentley’s Geek Files covering what’s happening in the Sci-Fi universe, an insight into the life and times of DJ Helen Legh and Tara Cain’s From Dawn Till Rusk, chronicling life as a working mum in the Midlands.
The relaunch is part of a national roll-out of new websites by Trinity Mirror, which started at the Birmingham Mail and Birmingham Post.
