18 Oct My Town in Newsday
On the same day, on the opposing page of the blog brief, was another item, this one about News12MyTown, the new project my group has been working on for months and launched last month. The official press release went out today.
CABLEVISION is to announce today a new Web site where users can post calendar items, articles and information about their community. News12 mytown.com has launched a pilot for Huntington (huntington.news12my town.com) and for Fair Lawn and Bergenfield, N.J., for feedback before rolling out the service across the tri-state area. Each community site includes photos, video, stories and a bulletin board where users can “sound off.” Patrick Dolan, president of News 12 Networks, said the service “takes our mission to deliver local news and information to a whole new level, with local residents actually providing the content that is most important and relevant to their own communities.”
