Talawanda Tribune Goes Digital


The Talawanda Tribune

The Official News Source of Talawanda High School went live on April 5th. Student news stories are displayed in a clean format, and visitors can comment on each news story.

The Talawanda Tribune, Talawanda’s cherished news source, has embraced change and integrated technology.

On April 5th, 2012, the domain name www.talawandatribune.org went live, ushering in a brighter outlook for the future of the newspaper.

“In light of print media transforming into digital media, it seems relevant that the Tribune made an online news source for the Talawanda communtiy,” said Tribune advisor Matt Aerni. “It seems to have gotten the staff and students excited again about writing news.”

“Yeah, we were thinking it was about time for a revitalization, so a website, we found, was the best route to take,” says staff writer Joseph DeVaugn. “The entire thing looks pretty professional, and news is more timely and easier to read.”

The website also introduces several new columns, including Tribune Tries It, Healthy Living, The Blip, The Gaming Corner, Fourteen and a Half Questions With…, and A Conversation With Ryan Arvin.

Fan favorites are also there, such as Arts & Entertainment, Sports, World & Politics, School Life, and The Leak.

Interactivity is a big feature of the site, as users can comment and answer polls.

Staff member Luke Howard states, “I feel that the Tribune website is yet another step with Talawanda moving into the future and overall, I think it’s a postive move for the entire curriculum.”

Justin Nipper, staff writer, summed everything up in one word: “Awesometastic.”
