'The Kansas City Star' Upgrades Digital Platform

The Kansas City Star has created a new digital experience for readers called Edition. 

The daily email newsletter was enhanced based on feedback from readers, and is now part of an “immersive and intuitive digital platform,” writes Greg Farmer, executive editor.  

The Star is planning “meetups” where staff journalists will answer questions and explain how to use the interactive platform.

On a technical level, Edition includes responsive tabbed pages and quick-access section navigation; story links inside articles; videos and photo galleries; and interactive puzzles and games.

The goal is to provide a “pleasing reading experience on all devices—desktop computer, laptop, phone and tablet," Farmer continues.

Edition is “not a replica of our printed paper,” he says. “It offers much more.”  

But he adds that Edition “does have a look that newspaper fans will love, and it’s still curated by us with the local news, sports and opinion that are most important to you, followed by national and lifestyle stories in different sections.”
