The Las Cruces Bulletin along with Desert Exposure, the paper's tourism magazine, upgraded to Creative Circle's dynamic mediasiteQ web CMS July 18, 2019.
The Bulletin switched from a Tecnavia web site. Desert Exposure had a basic WordPress site. Both relied primarily on e-readers and not the web sites themselves. Their new sites are more flexible, more visual and easier to run.
This brings all of the family-owned Osteen Publishing publications onto Creative Circle's web platforms.
The Item in Sumter, S.C., along with Gulf Coast Media in Alabama (The Baldwin Times, The Onlooker, The Courier, The Islander and the Alabama Gulf Coast Visitor Guide), OPC Media in Florida (Ponte Vedra Recorder and Clay Today).
Creative Circle had previously redesigned the print editions of The Item and The Baldwin Times.
"We have a long and close relationship with the Osteen family," said Bill Ostendorf, Creative Circle's founder and president. "And we're committed to supporting family owned publishers and helping family owned publishers thrive in print and online."
