Online presence


The Trinidad and Tobago Express news website, then known as the Internet Express, grew quickly into one of the top visited websites about Trinidad and Tobago. With up to 10,000 hits per day, the website has become one of the online centrepieces of CCN. In 2002, newscasts of the television channel CCN TV6, and its televised daily polls, were carried out using an integrated website of the Trinidad and Tobago Express. That same year, the joint staff of the Trinidad and Tobago website also created an e-commerce venture online called the Express MarketPlace, which was later renamed CaribBuy in 2003. In order to remain focused, a CCN New Ventures division was created within CCN to take control of the various websites.

History


Raoul Pantin, a former journalist and editor for the Trinidad Express, authored a book, The Trinidad Express Story which chronicles the history and establishment of the newspaper.[2]

In 1986 the Express helped launch the Stabroek News, the first independent, general circulation newspaper in Guyana.[3]
