Radio Prague editor-in-chief explains changes to new-look website
It’s the first day of school, autumn is nearly upon us, and as you might have noticed there are changes too on the Radio Prague website. Radio Prague’s Editor-in-Chief Gerald Schubert came into the studio to explain what’s new and why.
OK, so what are some of the new things that our readers can expect from the site?
“Well, it’s nice that you say readers because actually what I want to refer to…”
I’m sorry, listeners!
“No, they are readers as well, but the thing I wanted to refer to was the audio performance of our website. Of course we have a lot of readers on our website, we will still present everything in text as well, but we have a new feature for listeners on the website, and that’s our own embedded player which means that listeners don’t need to have software on their computer. They don’t have to wait until a new window opens; they can just click on the player on our website and directly listen to the stories.”
“Definitely. We have to separate so-called ‘unique visits’ and articles read or listened to by people. We have about 800,000 unique visits a month in all our six language versions, and when it comes to opened articles it’s almost 1,500,000, which is really quite a lot. We’re one of the most important Czech news sources in the Czech Republic and I think the most important in the world.”
