Notes from the area
It is not every single day — and surely not in the 21st century — that a newspaper is launched.
Six Rivers Media will start its new on the net and weekly in-print newspaper, Bristol Now. The initially edition will be supplied no cost of price on Wednesday, and the web page is previously reside with a plethora of nearby content.
This new enterprise is a large offer for 6 Rivers and us newspaper enthusiasts who even now see benefit in print media, in addition to community information with timeliness provided by means of online video, graphics and other online content. But aside from the newspaper aspect of it, it is refreshing to see a enterprise acquire these an desire in our regional communities.
Now, I do not just say that due to the fact we are living listed here. But I suppose, mainly because Kingsport, Johnson City and Bristol are interconnected via their proximity, it looks what is pertinent in just one metropolis is applicable in the other people. It is a kind of sibling marriage. If your sister is getting a on line casino, you’ll want to know about it. And if your brother is raising taxes or creating a new university, it’s definitely of fascination. There is an interconnectedness we share as a region that stretches through the Tri-Cities and encompassing cities and counties and even through Southwest Virginia. We share comparable beliefs and passions, but each and every a person provides a form of character that is not solely the identical as the other. But what occurs in Bristol’s colleges, authorities and business enterprise sectors has an impression, and at the very minimum, is of curiosity to the relaxation of us. We all have connections during the region (and if nothing at all else, it’s often wonderful to see what new eating places are deserving of a quick day vacation adventure).
For 6 Rivers Media, it completes the trifecta of Kingsport, Johnson Metropolis and now Bristol. It’s also a way to serve a community that warrants protection. But for all of us, it is a way to genuinely see the Twin Towns and their character of its individuals, its passions, its folks and its in general story. There are stories to share in Bristol, just as there are stories to share in Johnson City and Kingsport.
I’m joyful to see this enterprise rise up by means of a weekly structure with a actual intention to provide and concentrate on the regional community. I hope you all consider a instant to check out Bristol Now at www.bristolnow.news and select up a print version in newsstands setting up Wednesday.
