When we read the news on Thursday that DNAinfo and Gothamist were shut down just a week after they voted to unionize we were stunned but we immediately realized that The Bronx lost yet another media outlet covering what’s important to the people of our borough.
Perhaps not so much with Gothamist but for years DNAinfo provided broad, localized coverage of The Bronx and oftentimes citing our exclusive content and breaking news articles.
But this isn’t the first time this has happened although perhaps not as drastic.
Other publications like The New York Daily News and even The New York Times have scaled back and even shut down their outer borough bureau offices leaving The Bronx and the rest of the boroughs thirsting for hyper local news.
For the past 8 years we’ve been providing just that and although our journey didn’t begin with the intention of becoming the go to source in The Bronx for what’s going on here, we went with it because you wanted it.
That being said, we will do everything possible to pick up the slack and fill the huge Bronx news void left behind fue to this loss and provide even more content relevant to you our readers.
