The publisher of ARLnow.com, BethesdaNow.com and RestonNow.com announced plans to launch a new local news website aimed for hyperlocal coverage of DC. Like the other sites within its brand, it will cover business, crime, and neighborhood news.
While its other local sites are successful for their locations, the new vertical will have lots of competition, specifically from InTheCapital.com, which launched just over two years ago and has a staff of 10+. Not to mention The Washington Post, the Washington City Paper, and a plethora of hyperlocal DC blogs.
Regardless, Local News Now LLC is looking for someone with two years of local news reporting experience, photography and photo editing skills, and a familiarity of social media.
One perk: “We believe in work-life balance and in a five-day work week — you will not be asked to work nights or weekends except in the event of breaking news or an especially important neighborhood meeting or event.”
