Concord Monitor launches new Web site

The Concord Monitor relaunched its Web site this morning reformatting it into a more user-friendly and, frankly, impressive site. "The news you need now" is the new motto, with a look similar to some of the revamps done by the Boston Globe and other national daily newspapers.
The Monitor's new site is better organized and more accessible than the previous one, with softer edges and text. It is easier to find features, organized on the left hand side of the page.
The site features a Most Read article list, a cute new trend in the business these days, along with blog feeds, a focus on the New Hampshire primary boldly placed in the middle of the homepage, AP video [along with the text the site has always had], and AccuWeather forecast information on the right hand side of the page. Another useful feature is the town-by-town map. Readers who want ultra local news, briefs, or event listings, can click on the map and then click on their town, and poof, there is the information that is available for that town.
Nice job indeed.
