Re: New Media Outlet May Contact You
Dear Municipal Official:
A group of about 40 former Star-Ledger editors and reporters have launched a new breaking news web site: Newjerseynewsroom.com. Be advised that you may be contacted by Newjerseynewsroom.com reporters, just as you are often contacted by local newspaper reporters.
With daily and weekly newspapers struggling financially and circulation slipping in New Jersey and nationally, the Newjerseynewsroom.com was developed to provide an alternative source of breaking news for New Jersey citizens.
Clearly this is another development in the on going changes we are witnessing with the Media and the reporting of the news and I thought you would find this of importance.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
