NewsWorks launched at 12:01 a.m.Nov. 15, 2010. And I get to be a part of it.
I’m the Feed Blogger for NewWorks, the new online initiative from WHYY, Philadelphia’s NPR affiliate. I’m responsible for making sure readers in the Delaware Valley know what’s happening in the region — right up to the minute. By working with other journalists to report stories as they happen and aggregating content from other small regional sites, I update the Feed up to five times and hour.NewsWorks’ goal is to create an oasis for civil, intelligent lively conversation — a place where readers can not only get news, but interact with one another.
I’m excited to be part of such an innovative venture with what I’ve come to know are bright, hardworking and more than capable colleagues.
My byline will appear occasionally, but you’re more likely to find me “at the keyboard” on the Feed. Hope to see you there.
