ArkansasSports360.com Goes Live

Finally, after hundreds of hours of planning and development, we’ve launched ArkansasSports360.com, a new daily sports news and commentary Web site.

The site, edited by Jim Harris, represents our first foray into sports reporting. And this time, we’ve inverted the pyramid, essentially turned the traditional print/Web publishing model on its head. Instead of publishing a print piece that drive a Web site, we’ve published a Web site that will drive a monthly print piece.

We’ll publish news stories to the site first; blog other sports coverage; critique sports media; and, most importantly, ask readers for comments. Readers will contribute to the effort by sharing opinions and submitting photos, informing the monthly print piece in a way not other print/Web partnership has. It’s a cool experiment that we look forward to conducting.

While the site launched today, we’ll continue to make changes and tweaks and roll out functionality in the weeks ahead. It’s been a long process so for, but it’s been fun. And we hope Arkansas sports fan will love it.
