Welcome to a new suite of products from the Merced Sun-Star. They're designed to deliver the news all day, your way. Beginning last fall, we worked with hundreds of readers to learn how they want us to build for the future. The results are a reimagined newspaper, website and mobile apps to help you connect to news and information anywhere, anytime.
Our new look creates an engaging blend of images, video and text edited and curated to fit into different parts of your day, whether you need a quick overview of what’s happening right now or have time to sit back and dive deep into an issue.
We emphasize significant stories and the news of the day, provide perspective and depth to important issues and tell you about all the things to do in our community.
Our new story design focuses on layers of information that provide readers the opportunity to explore a topic in more depth. There are quick summaries of key points, stand-out details that capture your attention, more pieces such as interactive maps, photo essays, videos and databases for you to explore. Stories will have a mix of styles and writing approaches, whether they’re breaking news, commentary or long-form features.
Our redesigned pages will emphasize visual journalism, including video and photo galleries. The design fits every part of your life.
In today’s fast-paced world, we recognize that your needs in both print and digital products are different than they were 5 years ago and will continue to change in the years to come.
At home, you’ll find an energized print edition that emphasizes the most important news right now, deeper storytelling and things to do, whether it's a hobby, sport or entertainment. We are further drawing on the strengths of a printed product, giving you more in-depth news and analysis and a wide array of topics that are of interest in our community.
In our digital products, you will continue to receive the latest news all day and be able to choose, by device, how deep you want to explore topics and how much time you want to spend with each.
On your desktop, you’ll find a new, more clearly organized mercedsunstar.com. Your mobile phone and tablet apps will adapt to whatever device you use for easy navigation. We encourage you to explore and give us your feedback as we know we have only scratched the surface of tomorrow’s news!
