The Gloucestershire Echo launches new dedicated website

The Gloucestershire Echo has a new website

Comments (31)

The Gloucestershire Echo has a new, dedicated website.

We have been delivering news, sport and entertainment to readers on Thisisgloucestershire.co.uk since 2004.

But one of the most common pieces of feedback we have had is that people want their local news from the area where they live – the area covered by the Gloucestershire Echo. So we have now launched Gloucestershireecho.co.uk

You will find great articles, reviews, events, businesses and pictures from Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and the Cotswolds. We know these are the areas that really matter to you.

Gloucestershire Echo Editor Kevan Blackadder said: "Our new-look site is bright and modern and will give our readers something very different.

“We are increasing the amount of video content and have all sorts of new ideas. The site will develop over the coming weeks and months so your feedback is vital. Please give the site a try and let me know what you think.”

Our sister paper The Citizen also has a new website - Gloucestercitizen.co.uk

    It is December 2013. Why is this still main story on app? Listing news by 'latest' shows stories from November. Duh.

    Now you just need to redirect http://tinyurl.com/qx7xm36 to the actual Echo website to save me typing so much and everybody is happy.

    Interociter seems to have a bit of inside info. No doubt the Echo is in the same position as numerous workplaces in Britain which seem to have been infiltrated by managers who are constantly calling for meetings because they haven't a clue what happens on the shop floor. I thought it just happened where I work but more and more people are saying the same. is it caused by people with uber qualifications but no proper work experience?

    Echo, just an observation but please do take note. This is the first time that all the contributors to a subject have all agreed with no dissent. Please do not bury your heads in the sand and do take note. No amount of comittee metings will change the FACT that this puerile move was a stupid one, swallow your pride, apologise if you can and take a few steps back. You really have dropped a clanger here, admit it!

    I cancelled my Echo subscription as did the works place shortly after Anita Syvret left as editor. Sadly the Echo and the website did nothing but go steeply downhill since then. Adverts take precedence over content, I know it is difficult these days but the Echo seem to be ignoring the communities they serve and whose money they need. A vicious downward spiral… No doubt spent a fortune on 'consultants' who have run off laughing all the way to the bank!

    Awful, sorry to tell you this TIG but somewhere along the line the point has been totally missed. The new design is awful. It looks as if it was designed for morons by attention-deficient idiots. As has been pointed out here as the "improvements" persist, more regular commenters are dropping out and TBH i find the public's commentary here (and on most news sites) is nine times out of ten more interesting, humorous and relevent than the stories. Stop peeing on the people who make the site worthwhile.

    A word to the wise: try comparing the number of current TIG comments with those you enjoyed a couple of years ago, and I'll think you'll find that each and every "improvement" has resulted in a reduction in feedback. The moral being - If it ain't broke don't fix it and we do NOT need nor want multiple sites!

    I suggest the designers look at The Times or The Daily Telegraph web sites. Not perfect, but better than this

    All I want is ONE site that I can find local news. If you live between major towns what site do you use. If you live in a village and search on the name of that village you now need to do that on two sites. Is TIG as up to date as the other sites ?

    Start of a new week, and no apparent modifications to the presentation of the new Echo website. So quite clear the owners don't care about feedback from their readers.
