Welcome to the new PBS NewsHour digital home. We created this site to better showcase our journalism and reflect what the NewsHour stands for amid the clamor of information in your news feed.
You’ll find our site to be faster, more responsive and better organized to serve what you’re seeking and introduce you to content you weren’t expecting.
We partnered with the design firm Upstatement to dig deep into our identity as a news organization and re-introduce ourselves, while maintaining what you value most about the PBS NewsHour. Our new site features refreshed typography, a brightened color palette and modern design values.
Kim Miller, senior designer at Upstatement explained the process. “The design challenge for the NewsHour was to upgrade the site’s overall aesthetic without scrapping the soul of the brand that viewers have come to know and love.”
After a top-to-bottom review of our digital presentation, we arrived at our goals and creative vision. To test our ideas, we convened an audience panel, and incorporated their feedback into the final site design.
Now you’ll find compelling displays of our daily journalism as well as our collections of in-depth reporting, from our most recent “America Addicted” series on the opioid crisis to long-term coverage of the “Desperate Journey” refugees and migrants are facing in Europe and Africa to our Emmy award-winning series “The End of Aids?”
We created new formats that clearly separate news from opinion and commentary, and we made it easier to find the PBS NewsHour stories from our broadcast. We worked to package our content in more meaningful ways to help users gain deeper understandings and make connections between news stories.
Video is, of course, vital to the NewsHour. The site now features a new live video collection, site-wide notifications and an always-present live video status driven by a steady stream of speeches, news briefings and Congressional hearings. Our nightly show is available live in multiple places — you can find a guide on how to watch here. After you finish looking over our new site, visit our other platforms, including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, PBS Video, Apple News, Tumblr, Instagram and Snapchat.
In the coming months, we’ll add more features to the site, and we’re eager to hear your feedback. Leave us comments about the new design on this page. If you find a bug, let us know so we can improve your experience.
