Dear Great Readers,

Welcome to the new and improved!

Since early this summer when we first rolled out the best-looking, most provocative, Black entertainment destination on the web, we’ve been hard at work making improvements in every area of the site.

We listened to your feedback and:

– tweaked the design with new background skins
– improved search & tagging
– developed the fastest-loading hi-def video player online
– rolled out a 2.0 of our already world-class photo gallery
– fixed our interactive You Said It! module allowing you to see and snag your own comments
– added more of your favorite polls and photo galleries


– refreshed the best dynamic lead in the business!

Best of all, NewsOne is now a part of the Black Planet Universe! The world’s original social network, with over 18 million members, is now just one click away.

Become a BP member straight from the site and get all the one-of-a-kind benefits of being a part of the largest African-American online community in the world.

Or, if you’re already down with BP, just login in and switch back and forth all day!

So please let me know if you have any feedback or questions about our new offerings. I’m here to make this the best web experience you’ve ever had.

Smokey D. Fontaine
Chief Content Officer
