Boston Globe launches new online 'angle' to stories

The Boston Globe is working to keep its place as a portal into Boston with its launch of a new feature in the opinion section of its Web site, "The Angle: Stories Worth Talking About." The section gives readers an opportunity to get deeper insights on regional and national issues and encourages their participation in discussions on the news, Editor & Publisher reported.

"By bringing together articles with a strong discussion point from all areas of our reporting, The Angle will help our online readers to become more engaged in the issues and subjects of high interest to them and the community at large," Peter Canellos, editorial page editor of The Boston Globe, stated in a press release.

The Angle feature will highlight one particularly interesting story per day, while providing readers with a complete selection of current articles from the Globe's coverage that include local, national, international, business, arts and entertainment news and more, the press release stated.

This feature makes it easier for readers to get deeper information on subject matters of interest by centralising all information related to the subject. It also offers readers links to original documents, related news stories, opinion pieces on a single topic, interviews with opinion leaders and other reactions to the piece, according to the press release.

"Readers can also rely on The Angle to expose them to new ideas that may not have caught their attention before," according to the Globe announcement, quoted by E&P. "The Angle provides links to many of the Globe's columns, editorials and blogs."
