Lethbridge-News-NowOn January 25, the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group launched a brand new, news and information destination for Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta, Lethbridge News Now.com. The portal is powered by the Country 95 News Team and boasts one of the largest staff of any news service in Southwestern Alberta, operating seven days a week to provide up-to-the-minute news, weather and sports coverage.

It also boasts one of the region’s largest Free Classified ad section where thousands of readers buy, sell, and trade everything from vehicles to real estate, find work, and place announcements, all totally free! The Lethbridge News Now Obituary page is expected to become the most visited obituary page in Southwestern Alberta. They also intend to host the region’s largest community group news and happenings section, and a comprehensive current events calendar.

Lethbridge General Manager Gary Dorosz say it’s where Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta will go for their news and information.

Today, everything is about to change! We are pleased to be able to bring Lethbridge News Now to our area and to be able to bring news and information to you in real time on your computer, tablet and phone. I believe that in a short period of time, the webpage and content will speak for itself. I invite everyone to log on and try Lethbridge News Now.com…I’m sure you’ll be back time and time again! And the best part, it’s totally FREE to view and use!

The new digital news portal also offers readers an opportunity to share their thoughts in the online forum and they invite readers to submit photos and videos that capture breaking news, compelling stories, local sporting events and community gatherings.

The website, designed in the Drupal content management system, is simple to use and well designed in tiled images for each section that include: local news, Alberta news, national news, world news, and agricultural news.
