North Jersey Media Group Shuts Down Its "Correspondent Submissions" Web Site

In Uncategorized on July 7, 2008 at 4:28 am

The North Jersey Media Group, owners of The Record and The Ridgewood News, recently shut down their local news oriented “MyCommunity” web site. MyCommunity.com relied almost exclusively on content provided by volunteer correspondents (i.e., bloggers). North Jersey Media group executives are rumored to be upset that certain correspondents were dominating electronic bulletin boards targeted at selected communities.

Update from another reader :

The WEB Masters reassured the registered contributors that the “My Community” site… will be returned by September after some needed improvements that were promised but, were not added. There were always controls on contributors of stories and interesting gallery photos (that could be shared and archived) for anything not appropiate. In some cases, the postings contributed News beyond the regular Ridgewood reporter’s time to report. The “newspapers” can’t do it all…. today’s News is delivered differently these days. Blogs.. sometimes get news and discussion out much faster… they should all be working together and helping each other. It provided opportunity to budding writers to see their “stuff” in print and develop a following of loyal readers. That is always a bottom line objective of any News provider.
