Today, WFRV launched a new website, using their new owner's website design. Nexstar Broadcasting requires each of its stations to have a web address that relates to the community or location, and NOT the station. So, Channel 5's new web address is now WeAreGreenBay.com instead of the familiar WFRV.com.
Channel 5 had already launched a new website back in April 2010, using Broadcast Interactive Media. That design looked futuristic and appealing, and it was easy to navigate. Their new site, however, uses much older graphics, dating back to 1998, according to the bottom of the site. Also, is it just me, or did they drop YouNews with the new site? That was really a main focus of the station for quite some time, so it's really unfortunate that Nexstar had to step in and take away all of WFRV's website glory.
At least the HD news was finished before the sale of WFRV closed -- otherwise, I could hardly imagine Nexstar paying for such a project.
Welcome to the Nexstar Era, WFRV.
