Design Overview:
The site looks dynamic, and content-intensive. The highlighted button of “listen LIVE” clearly defines that it’s a radio website. The navigation bar on the top is well positioned for users to target intended content, but the information on the homepage is a bit disarrayed, especially the slightly cluttered feature images could easily distract viewers.

A wide variety of groups like working professionals, students, and media employees, etc.

Business/Site Goals:
The website acts as a convergence of traditional and new media platforms through creative, original content and advanced delivery methods. The overall mix of online and offline broadcast is designed to better serve its local community.

Social media integration:
It is very active in creating social media connections.
