Welcome aboard

The Citizens Campaign today announced the launch of PatersonPress.com, a news site aimed at covering Paterson at the hyperlocal level.

The Paterson Press will be shepherded by former Star Ledger Reporter Joe Malinconico.  Malinconico will be the only staffer as the site will rely on paid freelancers for its coverage.

In a release from Citizens Campaign, the group said the news site will be strictly non-partisan and will cover the length and breadth of life in Paterson, including government, politics, sports, arts entertainment and non-profits.

The site will be operated by the Center for Civic Responsibility and Citizens’ Campaign.

In an era of shrinking news outlets, buyouts, layoffs and mergers, it’s nice to see a new kid on the block.
