RBFF adds news feed to website

The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation's Take Me Fishing campaign is making it easier for boaters and anglers to keep up with the latest outdoor stories by adding an on-site news feed to its website.

The feed is designed to provide visitors with the most up-to-date outdoor stories and function as another useful tool for boaters and anglers who want to read about the outdoors and plan a day on the water.

"As an organization we pride ourselves in being the go-to resource for all things boating- and fishing-related," RBFF president and CEO Frank Peterson said in a statement. "That's why we've chosen to add a live news feed to our website. Pulling from a wide range of sources, the feed will automatically update throughout the day to offer visitors timely news stories on the outdoors."

The feed is on the site's home page under the "Explore" section and showcases the day's top three stories. Users looking for additional news can also click through to the site's main news page.
