Since its digital debut in 1995, DeseretNews.com has become one of the Intermountain West’s leading online news and information Web sites.
Initially launched in the form of a dial-in service, called Crossroads, in January of 1995 and as an official Web site in October of the same year, DeseretNews.com now receives more than 23 million monthly page views and is the most visited newspaper Web site in Utah.
DeseretNews.com not only draws a strong local audience, but also has worldwide appeal for its content regarding The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in addition to its in-depth coverage of Brigham Young University sports. Local users frequent the Web site for the latest Utah news and features, as well as exclusive coverage of Utah high school sports and athletes.
As a friend of the community, DeseretNews.com is taking opportunities to work closely with cities and schools, helping readers connect to each other. To accomplish this, the site features a new communities section that will grow to become one of the central features of DeseretNews.com.
