Why Does Everything Look Different???

Why, thank you for noticing.  We DID change our layout today.

Our parent site, voanews.com, went through a major overhaul.  If you are a VOA reader and haven’t checked out the new site design yet, pop over and take a look.  It’s cleaner, more visual and hopefully easier to navigate.

It’s also a lot wider, and we’ve changed our look to match.  So you’ll see a wider layout on our blog posts and sidebar.  We’ve also added a section at the bottom of each post for related items, so you can hopefully find more things that you’re interested in.  And you’ll see more options for sharing to social media (Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus).

No, it’s not perfect, and we’ll be continuing to tweak it as we get settled into the new look.  But think of it like a new haircut – let it grow in for a few days before you judge!  And as always, questions, comments and feedback are encouraged.


  1. Sadly you no longer offer download options for the audio news reports, which is the main reason i came to the site. i used to lead them onto my mp3 player.

    1. Hi Dave. I assume you’re talking about voanews.com’s redesign, rather than ours. Audio files are still downloadable from voanews.com. If you go to a story with audio in it (like this one: http://www.voanews.com/content/cameroonians-worldwide-celebrate-independence-day/920284.html) you’ll see the audio player and right underneath you’ll see the option to download. Right click that link to save it to your computer. Also, all of VOA’s audio programs are still available as podcasts, which you can also download and save (link to podcasts: http://www.voanews.com/info/podcast/1356.html). Hope that helped!
