WEEI.com rolls out “mobile” version of website
BOSTON, MA (July 21, 2008) - WEEI Sports Radio has teamed up with g8wave, a mobile marketing agency, to create a mobile version of its website. The WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) version of the site at www.weei.com will provide a modified version of weei.com that is easily and quickly navigable on handheld devices such as mobile phones and blackberries.
The mobile site will include all of the key Boston sports-related news and information content you would expect from weei.com, as well as extras such as audio clips from the popular “Whiner Line”, WEEI themed ringtones, and topical, satirical sports cartoons from former Globe cartoonist and current weei.com contributor Larry Johnson
This comes on the heels of an announcement by WEEI last week regarding a significant overall investment in its digital content and distribution platforms, beginning with the hiring of veteran Boston sports journalists Rob Bradford and Michael Felger. Fans will notice several enhancements to the WEEI digital offerings over the coming months, culminating with the roll- out of a brand new site in January of 2009.
“We certainly recognize people’s growing reliance on handheld devices for information and entertainment,” said Tim Murphy, WEEI.com Vice President and General Manager. “This is just one part of an overall initiative at WEEI to expand our digital presence and better connect our proprietary content.
