The UpTake Gets New Look, Stays True To The Truth By Nick Coleman | December 20, 2013 LikeTweet EmailPrint More More on Minnesota Subscribe to Minnesota Follow this author The UpTake: Telling The Truth Since 2007 Happy holidays and welcome to The UpTake’s new web site! We wanted a new look for our site that would make The UpTake more user friendly and allow our supporters to comment on our stories so that they can engage in discussions on the topics and issues of the day. We also wanted to showcase our best work so that it is easier to find and more useful to our readers and viewers. But don’t worry: Our mission hasn’t changed a bit — we will still do our utmost to bring you the best local reporting on the issues that matter to you as we head into another year (our 7th!) of award-winning, non-profit, independent journalism. Special thanks to product strategy consultant Garrick Van Buren, for helping us navigate the digital challenges in creating our new home. We hope you like our new site and want to know what you think about it and how we might make it even better. After all, The UpTake exists in order to increase the voice of the public. Let us hear yours! — Nick Coleman, Executive Editor Support this story and all the stories from The Uptake. Donate.
