Welcome to the new and improved NewscastStudio

Notice anything different?

After nearly a year of planning, design and development, we’re excited to officially unveil our new look.

We’ve completely revamped our website with a fresh new look and a navigation system that gives you fast access to our most popular content.

One of the biggest changes is that we no longer offer a separate blog homepage. Instead, the main homepage now serves as a streamlined portal for all the content on NewscastStudio, whether it’s the latest images posted to our galleries or the latest headlines.

At the top of the homepage, you’ll see a large area that we’ll be using to showcase the biggest stories, including exclusive coverage you won’t find anywhere else.

Our new design also makes use of cleaner typography that matches our logo, giving you a clean, consistent reading experience.

Also watch for a new look for our weekly e-newsletter this Friday.

This redesign marks the beginning of our 10th year online. Be sure to check back frequently throughout the year for exclusive 10 year anniversary content.

We’re also proud to now have a website that is completely powered by WordPress. This open source blogging and content management platform makes managing and updating NewscastStudio easier and simpler.

As with any new website, there are bound to be some hiccups, so feel free to contact us if you notice anything amiss. We’ll be working hard over the next few days to get everything ironed out — and we appreciate your patience!

  1. Hey, I typically view the site on my phone. Are there plans in place for a mobile version? Chris Wood

    • We've considered a mobile version, but aren't sure how much demand there would be. This is the first time we've had a request, but we'll start looking into it and trying to gauge how much interest there is! NewscastStudio

  2. The music page is not in English. I have no idea what it is...Latin, perhaps? John

    • Thanks for catching that, John! That text is what's called "lorem ipsum" and is used for placeholder in designs. NewscastStudio
