"What's Open" app is helping us in our community

This is the best thing we have done for the community in years! I think this will pay big dividends long after this crisis is over. Great job on this. It puts the newspaper in the forefront and leader in the community and puts us way ahead of our other media competitors in the area!

Creative Circle created the app in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to help newspapers deal with the flood of information about what businesses were closed or open during waves of shutdowns.

Creative Circle also redesigned the print editions of the Times-News and their sister paper, the Johnson City Press.
