KCRW today became the latest local media outfit to redo its website. Lot more pictures and accessibility, easier audio playing, 20 years of archives. Here's the link. "Over 70 percent of KCRW.com visitors come from outside of Los Angeles, 2.5 million hours are digitally streamed monthly, and 1.5 million programs are listened to on-demand," KCRW says.
The launch coincides with the planned groundbreaking Wednesday for a new KCRW studio and media center on Stewart Street in Santa Monica. The 35,000-square-foot building was designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects and will get the station out of the cramped basement it occupies at Santa Monica College.
