In a memo obtained by FishbowlDC yesterday, Robert Allbritton disclosed details of the next Allbritton Communications project – the Metro news site TNR reported on Tuesday.

Allbritton says the new project, led by former Washingtonpost.com editor Jim Brady will “include a merger of the current WJLA.com and News8.net websites into a site whose aim is to set a new standard for media coverage of local news, with a staff of more than 50 people.”

Allbritton goes on to say, “This is a work in progress. There are lots of questions that we have not yet tackled and that we can’t answer now. Jim’s experiment is not coming at the expense of what we are doing now at WJLA, NewsChannel 8 or POLITICO.”
