We’re excited to announce an editorial partnership with the Seattle Times that encompasses PhinneyWood, My Ballard and the rest of Next Door Media’s sites: Queen Anne View, Magnolia Voice and Fremont Universe. The partnership originated with a grant by American University’s J-Lab, which aims to explore how established media companies can work together with promising neighborhood news sites.
This new partnership is a testament to how our readers and advertisers have helped make PhinneyWood and the other neighborhood news websites an integral part of the neighborhoods they cover. Most of our stories originate with tips from readers. Now, some of the best stories will be linked from Seattle’s largest news site. We’re very pleased that the Times has chosen to work together with organic, neighborhood-grown news sites, instead of creating competing efforts designed to draw advertising dollars away from the neighborhood.
