Gazette to unveil new-look mobile website
A new look for The Royal Gazette's mobile website is to be unveiled tomorrow.
And the revamped site promises to be easier to navigate and brighter than its predecessor.
Jonathan Howes, chief executive officer of Bermuda Press (Holdings) Ltd, the parent company of The Royal Gazette, said: “We have rebuilt the site to improve its functionality.
“The redesign for the mobile site makes it more user-friendly and will enhance the delivery of our content to our readers.”
Mr Howes added: “We are excited to be updating the product and we're looking forward to updating other products in the near future.”
Readers who use a mobile device to access the website, www.royalgazette.com, are directed automatically to the mobile site.
The new site has taken away the carousel of stories, replacing it with lists by category and is more image-driven than the old site.
But The Royal Gazette hasn't forgotten its traditional readers — the newspaper is to increase its print footprint with an expanded delivery service in the St David's and St George's areas.
Vivian Sailsman, circulation manager at The Royal Gazette, said: “We want the entire East End to know that The Royal Gazette can be delivered to their homes and it will only cost 99 cents per day, as opposed to the normal $1.50 cover price.
“We have got around 40 people we deliver to in St David's and St George's already.
“Not everyone in that area has had the luxury of home delivery and we want to make the fact that we can deliver there more widely known.”
To sign up for home delivery, contact The Royal Gazette circulation department on 278-0172.
