Follow the link to the “latest evolution of Indian Country Today” and you’ll be greeted by an under construction sign of sorts.
But on Jan. 14, ICT will make an expansion as it launches an upgraded and expanded version of itself with Indian Country Today Media Network. New features will include the updated site and a weekly magazine, PR Newswire announced.
Ray Halbritter, Nation Representative and CEO of the Oneida Nation, which owns ITC, made the announcement through Newswire on Thursday.
Thanks to Halbritter’s vision, guidance and his desire to keep pace with today’s expanding media environment, Indian Country Today Media Network was created. “It has always been my desire to create a destination that can bring all the Nations together,” said Halbritter. “With Indian Country Today Media Network we have created a full service media platform that is current, timely, sophisticated, inclusive and widely available. Our whole community now has a place to go to get news, exchange ideas, and communicate with one another.”
The website and magazine will provide essential news and information from Indian Country, featuring new artists and cultural highlights, and give life to the most forceful voices in the national community. The network will also offer online services in the areas of education, business and events—everything from listings of Tribal Colleges to the latest pow wows.
