KCNC Getting a New Website? (Updated)

The current design of CBS4Denver.com.

CBS Television Stations and CBS Radio are combining their websites in markets where they both operate into a single website. WCBS-TV in New York dropped its former website, wcbstv.com, and joined WCBS-AM, WINS-AM, and WFAN-AM in launching CBSNewYork.com earlier this week.

The new website platform is powered by WordPress (yes, the same software this site uses) and features an improved video player. In CBS Corp’s second quarter earnings conference call, Les Moonves and other CBS executives said this platform will make its way to other markets.

But where does that leave KCNC-TV? Denver is the only market in which CBS doesn’t own both television and radio stations. However, it seems likely that KCNC-TV will adopt this format later this year anyway for continuity’s sake. CBS has also already registered¬†CBSDenver.com. I contacted KCNC-TV for comment, but they did not respond.

While the new platform is decent, I will miss the current design of CBS4Denver.com, which I think is the best website out of all of the TV stations in Denver.

Update: KCNC did contact me, and they told me that they aren’t sure what will happen yet.
