Reuters to switch regional readers to global website
Tuesday 18 August 2020
Reuters is to update its reuters.com website as a global news showcase instead of having regional editions.
It means users will be redirected later this year from most regional editions of the site, many of which operate as automated news feeds “and offer uneven experiences” digital news director Arlyn Gajilian and consumer managing director Simon Hutson, told staff.
They said: “The new site will reflect the full range of global news that Reuters reports, but in a destination that offers a unified, more consistent and higher quality experience to our global audience.”
It “will offer an improved user experience, better functionality and design, more expert curation and a world-class platform for our journalism. We have developed a wide range of enhancements in how we present and deliver our news.”
They added: “The changes have no impact on our journalistic resources, our commitment to reporting from every corner of the world in multiple languages or the services we provide to media clients and Refinitiv. We will continue to deliver on a robust, global off-platform distribution and social media strategy.” ■
