Center Maryland 2.0 – Coming Soon (and a Sneak Peak)

Center Maryland is proud to announce that we will be launching a major upgrade to our website and daily email starting later this month.

The new website and email – what we like to call Center Maryland 2.0 – is the result of many conversations we have had with our loyal readers over the past few months, and we have worked hard to keep what you say you like about Center Maryland while trying to make improvements to address the ways that you think we can get better.

Yes, we’re still going to be your leading source of all of the important political, government and business news and commentary across Maryland media each day. And yes, we’ll still offer our strong lineup of original political and business commentary, as well as a diverse array of video interviews from our Center Maryland studio.

What’s new? We’re promising a more engaging homepage, featuring images of our latest videos. The news should be easier to read and navigate, particularly on mobile devices. We’ll be able to offer sponsorship advertising opportunities on both the homepage and the daily email (contact us at info@centermaryland.org for more information). Our aggregated headline content will be more easily searched – and it will stay on our website for an extended period of time, instead of being wiped clean each weekday.

Check out the image below for a sneak peak of what the new home page will look like.

With the new website, we will be shifting to a new email provider. We expect that the transition should go smoothly and without interruption. But if for some reason you get bumped out of our email list during the transition, please shoot us an email at info@centermaryland.org and we’ll work to get your subscription fixed.

To make all of this possible, we’d like to extend a special thanks for the hard work of our friends at CentroSync, a terrific IT consulting company based in Montgomery County. The team at CentroSync looked at how we had been operating for the past 3-1/2 years and helped us develop new and better ways to move forward.

We’re going to do our best to make this transition as smooth as possible. Please forgive us if we’re a little late a couple of morning as we work out the kinks. And remember – if you drop off the email, please contact us right away and let us know so we can fix your subscription.

Thanks for your support of Center Maryland, and please consider whether an advertising sponsorship at Center Maryland might be the right choice for your company or organization.
