The BBC has been making some changes to its news website to promote live TV and Radio and to give more prominence to other ways of accessing news — mobiles, RSS news feeds, emails and podcasts. Steve Herrmann, editor of the news site, posted a request on The Editors blog asking for feedback at lunchtime yesterday.
By this morning there were 86 rsponses. As always with change there are people who don’t like them but most of the comments are constructive, many of them making suggestions for further changes. This is a great example of the way a dialogue between a news organisation and its audience can work.
