New York Post Adds to Staff Ahead of Website Revamp

The New York Post’s website looks like it was created in 2001, so we’re happy to hear that a completely new NYPost.com is launching next week. According to a memo obtained by Capital New York, the new site will include “responsive design across all devices, better navigation and search, immersive and fun new features, and much more.”

In advance of that relaunch, the Post has expanded its team. See below for the major additions.

And just for the record, we don’t have anything against 2001. It was great. Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles came out that year! Hard to top that.
