Barrington Broadcasting rolls out new Web design to its stations


Barrington Broadcasting Group has rolled out a new design to 26 station Web sites around the country.

The new design, based heavily off of its previous layout, has a much cleaner look, dropping the different colored news categories.

The new site design was also built heavily around search engine optimization.

Overall though, the homepage lacks any big bang.

The radar image on most of the sites are bigger than the main headline and image. Many new sites use very large images and media players, but these seem to lack much of that and rely more on headlines. One part of the site that does work is the multiple news tabs on the homepage, you can quickly see different categories of news.

Some examples of the new look:
