Bluecadet launches WHYY.ORG

Bluecadet is thrilled to announce the launch of the new whyy.org. We’re proud to have designed and developed this new mobile-first website for the leading public media organization in the Philadelphia region. With responsive web design and an updated aesthetic, the site appeals to a younger and broader audience and creates a scalable editorial platform for a fast-paced newsroom. The site brings together in one location the station’s respected and award-winning news service with the organization’s video and audio content, schedules, event listings and more.

The design offers templates to showcase rich media, with immersive article templates for “magazine” stories and in-line media, including slideshows, images, video, audio. The site also includes persistent livestream and an audio player that continuously plays as the user navigates around the site, no matter the device (desktop, tablet, and mobile).

“Organizations have to tune into and adapt to changing audience needs in order to survive in this constantly evolving media landscape,” said WHYY President & CEO William Marrazzo. “We must be prepared to act quickly yet thoughtfully to meet the expectations of today’s users thus increasing our value to the citizens of the tri-state area.”
