RVA News Has Arrived

Wow, a local news website does a redesign and ends up becoming easy to use, easy on the eyes and not cluttered with a bunch of crap. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the new and improved RVAnews website.

Clearly RVA News has arrived and is ready to be a major player on the local news media front. Although let's be honest, the competition is, uhhh, rather weak. How can a small team of two guys and a new mommy who all presumably work out of their garage, take entire armies of web guys to task?

Hey Times Dispatch and Style Weekly, are you taking notes yet?

Oh my lord, awesome. Any way you can talk some of those kids into fixing the monstrosity that is the RTD? Embarrassing.

It seems like the RTD is taking a beating, but why haven't people mentioned Style?

Their new website is an eyesore.

Style's web update is pretty sad visually, but at least you can find articles. It just loads like a 9-year-old programmed it. RTD is a site architecture nightmare in every way. Reporters can't even find their damn stories.

Richondite, do you work for Media General?
