RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — WRAL Local Tech Wire is now available live on your mobile device.

Working in partnership with Capitol Broadcasting’s News Over Wireless group, LTW has created a version of our award-winning news coverage catered for quick, easy access while you are on the go.

Stripped of non-essentials, the site is designed to be accessed quickly and highlight the news you need – and want.

The decision to launch Local Tech Wire mobile is based on user demand. Many of our customers have requested an easier-to-read version. Fewer or no graphics, less HTML code, etc. Just the news.

We believe the News Over Wireless crew has delivered a version that meets those requests.

Here is the site:

To access it, follow these two steps:

1. Enter in your mobile browser.

Our News Over Wireless team, which is part of Capitol Broadcasting’s New Media Group along with LTW, is working with TV outlets around the country to deliver news and information on demand. We are modeling the new LTW site on that successful program.

Your feedback is welcome. Check it out – wherever you are at any time!

In its seven years, LTW has been named the Media Company of the Year twice by the North Carolina Technology Association and has been a finalist for that or other awards in three other years.

The world is going mobile, and so are we. More changes for LTW are in the works that we believe you will find attractive, enjoyable – and more informative as we strive to improve coverage of high tech, life science and venture capital/financing.
