A Note To Our Readers
North Carolina Public Radio - WUNC has launched a redesigned website that features a number of enhancements for our digital readers.
The new WUNC.org offers a better reader experience with a clean design, prominent headlines, and better display of photos and videos. The site is mobile-friendly and includes more prominent links to help you share stories on your favorite social media channels. It also allows us to seamlessly leverage content from NPR and other public radio member stations, while creating more robust, media-rich stories of our own.
You can continue to count on WUNC for all the current news and information you’ve come to expect from us. We’ll continue to feature our top local stories in the same spots you’re used to finding them, and we’ll have a more robust selection of news features, podcasts, national and international stories displayed further down on the home page.
If you want to browse stories, head to the navigation bar at the top of the home page and choose from a selection of categories and topics. If you prefer to search for content, click on the magnifying glass at the top of the site. There you’ll be able to search for any story that has been published on our site since 2012.
Member and event information will continue to be in the About and Support sections, and we encourage you to sign up for our weekly newsletter.
You may also notice we’ve disabled our online comments attached to individual stories. Connecting with our audience is core to our mission of informing and engaging with our community. While comments have offered a small, loyal core of our audience a place to engage with stories, most of those conversations are now happening on our social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, as well as through live and virtual events. This decision follows that of many other news organizations, including NPR, that have moved comments off their site and onto social media.
