The future of news and information is about mobile technology. The newly designed Globalnews.ca is so smart, it can detect what kind of device you are using: laptop, tablet or smart phone. It automatically adjusts and formats the content to best fit your screen, optimizing your individual news and video experience. You don’t even need to download an app to access our award-winning journalism. This new technology is called responsive design.
The new Globalnews.ca represents our commitment to deliver news and information the way you want it, when you want it. It’s up to us to fit into your busy life. A typical Globalnews.ca user may start her day catching up on her laptop, check in several times a day by way of her smart phone, then finish up watching a favourite local news program or video clip in bed just before turning out the lights.
Globalnews.ca also has a new editorial mandate: to go beyond the headlines and deliver more real-time and original reporting. We are committed to storytelling that provides deeper meaning, context and thoughtful analysis of local, national and international news. We will distinguish ourselves from the rest of the online news pack with enterprise, investigative and data-driven journalism.
While being ahead of the mobile curve is important, it is our trusted editorial, production and operations teams who will continue to deliver the accurate, balanced, timely and credible journalism that Canadians have come to expect from Global News.
Please take a few moments to check out our new Globalnews.ca video. As always, we look forward to interacting with you and hearing your feedback about our work.
