inewsource launched  a redesigned website today, with the goal of creating a better, more intuitive experience for our readers and supporters. We’ve made some of our biggest story topics easier to find: Government, education and health are now prominently displayed.

Readers will also have no trouble finding our Data Center, where we collect the data-driven projects that make our journalism unique in San Diego. If you haven’t yet, take a minute to play with our interactive map of lottery retailers in the county, or find the kindergarten vaccination rate in your school.

We’re excited to share our redesign, and we’re not finished. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be rolling out a new section to spotlight the importance of investigative journalism. We’ll also share stories from our supporters about why they donate to inewsource.

We ask for your patience and your help. Any new website has bugs, so bear with us. But also let us know what you think about our new look and whether you find broken links or other glitches. Email us at

While you’re cruising the new site, sign up for our newsletter to be among the first to know about our latest projects.
