LeaderPub.com has a new look.

Leader Publications’ revamped website, which launched today, is designed to be more aesthetically appealing, more user-friendly and provide quicker access to news.

“We truly feel this is a huge leap forward in serving our digital readers and our communities with an online source of information fitting with how news is communicated today,” said Leader publisher Michael Caldwell. “We are reaching more readers than ever before and want to ensure that we evolve and adjust for how they access our digital content, whether that is from a phone, a tablet, a computer or other device.

On the new website, readers will find content organized similarly to how it was displayed on the former site. The home page features a blend of the most recent news from all of our newspapers, and content from each individual newspaper can be found on subpages.

Those wishing to access a certain community or section of the newspaper can do so by navigating the menu bar at the top of the page. Niles news can be found by clicking “News,” and then “Niles,” Dowagiac by clicking “News” and then “Dowagiac,” and so on and so forth.

Other new features include more reader-friendly photo galleries, larger photos and quicker navigation.

“We understand that embracing change takes time and that there will be an adjustment period. We welcome feedback on what readers like and don’t like about the new look,” Caldwell said. “We will continue to improve and refine our digital products to best serve our readers in northern Indiana and southwest Michigan.”
