A new feature and focus of The Sumter Item is its video production services, Studio Sumter, which is launching a daily news show, Sumter Today, today at www.theitem.com/studiosumter and continues to help partners and advertisers grow their reach.
"More readers read The Sumter Item online this January than ever before in the paper's 124-year history," Publisher Vince Johnson said. "We're excited about the possibilities this new website will do to grow that number from 1.5 million page views a month."
Videos produced by Studio Sumter will be updated daily and easily found on the new website in a shareable format, as well as on The Sumter Item's Facebook and YouTube pages.
While the web pages may look different, everything that was there before remains accessible. However, if you can't find something or come across an issue of any sort with the new website, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We're steadfast in our commitment to create one of the premier local news experiences in the country for the Sumter community," Johnson said. "From our daily email newsletter to our social media pages, our new video operation, new contests, new website and an updated look to our daily newspaper, I'm really pleased with how the community continues to respond and engage with our historic company. We want to reach you in every way possible, make your lives more informed and help lead the growth of Sumter."
