Microsoft and MSNBC were once a duo, but July 2012 marked the end of that relationship. The two companies cut ties and MSNBC started on its way to reinventing itself.
Aiming to improve user participation and enhance viewing experiences, MSNBC will be re-launching its website next week. Readers that are part of the company’s newsletter mailing list were treated to an email from MSNBC.com Executive Editor Richard Wolffe regarding the new site.
“The wait is almost over,” Wolffe wrote. “We launch next week, and as promised, you’ll get an early look at the website that will transform the digital progressive community. Keep an eye out for an email next week so you can be one of the first to try it out.”
While the new site is not officially available, MSNBC.com redirects users to nbcnews.com.
Viewers can also choose to get a first look at the updated MSNBC website, which will bring up the following page:
MSNBC is hoping to be in the forefront of the digital news age, allowing users to watch its channel live online, join online communities and create groups based on specific interests. Wolffe is encouraging his readers to share the news about this re-launch to all of their friends on social media sites.
