BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – Today, Daily Voice launched its 43rd news site, Bridgeport.dailyvoice.com. Here is Founder and CEO Carll Tucker's letter to the people of Bridgeport.
Today Bridgeport becomes the 43rd Daily Voice news site.
Daily Voice is a community news network covering all of Westchester and Putnam counties in New York and most of Fairfield County in Connecticut. With more than 600,000 unique monthly visitors, according to Google Analytics, Daily Voice is by far the largest news provider in its geography. Its market penetration of more than 50% of all adults is unprecedented.
Daily Voice’s mission is to tell neighbors what’s happening in town. We want our news to be “first, fresh, fast, abundant, various, and fun.” When there’s a traffic back-up on I-95 or a storm coming in, we aim to tell you first. Big or small events we feature in our pages. We celebrate the accomplishments of neighbors. When bad news happens, we report it with regret. We support the communities we serve. We don’t go looking for bad news or reveling in a community’s distress.
Daily Voice belongs to you. It’s your digital town green. Send us your news – please! The answer is yes.
We launched our first Daily Voice in Norwalk in March 2013 and have continuously added readers and sites since then. Our intention is to expand, first, around New York City, then throughout the country, one town at a time.
We are particularly fortunate that Rob Sullivan will be leading our Bridgeport news team. Rob is a veteran Bridgeport reporter and editor with more than two decades of journalism experience. He has been the editor of two Bridgeport newspapers and is the author of the book, Political Corruption in Bridgeport: Scandal in the Park City. You may recognize Rob’s byline from his website, The Bridgeport Banner, which will be merging with Bridgeport.DailyVoice.com.
Bridgeport.DailyVoice.com is here for you. We welcome all suggestions. Rob’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Mine is email@example.com. Let us hear from you.
