CityNews Anchors are Not Charged with Murder, Not Hollywood Filmmakers, and Not Pro Tennis Players

This morning our friends over at Citynews launched their new and improved web site.

It's a significant improvement, both esthetically and functionally. The most obvious changes are a (debatably) slicker, more modern and legible look, and the introduction of reader comments on stories (which is sure to boost the level of interaction readers can have with one another). Two thumbs up.

But the front page headline section is also suffering from a bit of a graphic design / layout problem that could easily make top headlines susceptible to comical misinterpretation.

Regular viewers know that beloved Citynews anchors Dwight Drummond and Merella Fernandez are not wanted for homicide. And that they are not the masterminds behind the recently opened Hollywood film District 9. Nor are they taking each other on for the Rogers Cup in tennis.

The fix should be easy enough... and hopefully it comes before people start recognizing Dwight and Merella out on the streets and asking them to sign their ticket stubs and tennis rackets.

Hat tip to blogTO reader Tim Lemieux for the tip. And kudos to CityNews for an otherwise smooth upgrade!
