With the news that One News will launch a new website tonight, I thought I’d share this screenshot of One Network News’ website in 1996 when Mount Ruapehu was erupting.
TVNZ’s online news has undergone a makeover to align more closely with its on-air counterpart and now has its own dedicated site, onenews.co.nz.
The new site will be home to all of TVNZ’s news content, while the tvnz.co.nz homepage will continue to have a strong news presence in the short term to navigate users through to onenews.co.nz.
TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Ross Dagan says, “The revamp will make it easier for New Zealanders to access their news anywhere, anytime and to find what they want more quickly. It will also give our first-rate news video more prominence.”
onenews.co.nz launches at 11pm on Tuesday, June 12th, in time for exclusive streaming of Wimbledon from June 25th, and extensive 2012 London Olympics coverage in July and August.
The new site will have 24-hour Games coverage, including video highlights, live text updates, extended interviews from the ONE News team in London and commentary and analysis from experts. This content will be available across the new website, and also on the mobile site, news app on iPhone, and across social media platforms.
