Friday, September 14, 2007 Launches New Look

CBS News has relaunched with a very nice and clean look. On the homepage, you can pull in headlines from local news organizations, including the CBS O&O’s and local newspapers. Weather on the site is powered by Weather Channel, but doesn’t appear to display on the homepage. Video has a much larger showcasing on the new site, with links and video thumbnails everywhere, but the site is still using a pop-up video player. They are using Flash video inside of the stories, although there is no player on the homepage. The story page video player seems very small. Katie Couric will even give you a tour of the new site through a video, but you have to watch a painfully long :30 second commercial first.
