Hi there! 

I’d like to welcome you the brand new BringMeTheNews.com! We pride ourselves on being different from other news organizations. I really think you are going to enjoy this.

This site has several new features that I’d like to walk you through.

Personalization: Don’t like the dark design? You can change the colors of the site. You can also filter the categories of news content we present to you on the home page. You can personalize your experience on the sign-in page.

My Feeds: We give you the opportunity to pull in non-Minnesota RSS feeds from sites such as CNN, People.com and Sports Illustrated into the BringMeTheNews platform. You can begin to pick the feeds at the bottom of the registration page after you sign-in.

Story timeline: We know that many of you come directly to our story pages from social media or email and often don't even go to the home page. So, we’ve design our story-pages to include all of the elements that you’d see on the front page in a thinner, timeline format so you can also quickly see the other top stories of the day. You can experience the timeline feature on any story page to the left of the story copy.

Weather page: You told us overwhelmingly that the most important things to you on the weather page are the hourly forecast and the radar. So, we put them both at the top and added a classic Minnesota weather photo. Big thanks to Nanci Sauriff for the gorgeous winter image that headlines the page. Check it out.

Please let us know what you think in the comments below. Or, you can email me directly at rk@bringmethenews.com.

Rick Kupchella,
CEO
