In the summer of 2012, the lab launched WhichWayNC, a mobile-optimized news site about political issues important to North Carolina residents.
The mobile site explores North Carolina’s political culture, which has been in constant flux. More than covering horserace politics, the project delves into how the state’s changing policies and practices are playing out in the community.
As the field of journalism adapts to innovations in technology and the emerging trend of two-way communication, WhichWayNC takes an experimental look into this transitional period as part of Reese News Lab’s effort to pioneer content creation for mobile devices. Our journalists tested and documented best practices for creating mobile content.
