Times to get new Interactive features

Times Online, the website of the Times and Sunday Times, is being re-designed.

Features will include:
  • Further integration of print and website operations (like the Telegraph model).
  • Times Online TV with footage from Sky News.
  • A search engine that readers use to create tailored web pages.
  • A downloadable PDF file available each day at 5pm containing business news, analysis and comment, and Comment Central blog.

Times Online has 9 million monthly unique users and is increasing its blogs and podcasts.

The rapid movement by the core print media this year is affecting how PR interfaces with its traditional communication partner.

This week has seen many major announcements.
