LMU WEBSITE TO UNDERGO MAJOR CHANGES
(April 18, 2001) -- The Loyola Marymount University athletic website, www.LMULions.com, will be going through some major changes over the next four months. These changes will bring about a new look and enhanced features, including audio webcasts to LMULions.com.
On Friday, April 13, the LMU athletic website's service provider, TotalSports went out of business. This created opportunities for LMU to explore options for a new host of the athletic website. In the transition to the new web service, LMULions.com will be "under construction" to provide the website visitor enhanced and increased options. This will result in possible delays in the daily posting of information. However, the athletic department will continue to place the highest emphasis on updating the website continuously and service will not be interrupted.
The transition to a temporary provider will take place the weeks of April 16 and April 23. A new contract with the permanent provider will be negotiated and concluded by June 1. The new site is planned to be operational by the start of the fall academic year of 2001. At this time the new web host has not been determined.
