Coming this fall: A new and improved Capital

Tweet Share on Facebook Share on Tumblr Print

We are in the news this morning: This website, which we launched in June of 2010, has been sold to Robert Allbritton, the owner of POLITICO.

This is going to allow us to get bigger and better.

Here's what we're doing now:

- Hiring more people: This will bring you more stories from more reporters and editors on topics central to the mission of a website dedicated to explaining how New York works. Please see our Jobs page for employment opportunities.

- Redesigning the website: We still love our design, which has changed very little since we launched, but we'll be studying the way you use it, and we'll be introducing some new features and functions. Tell us what you'd like to see, what you like and don't like about the look and feel and functionality of the site. Write us at gillian@capitalnewyork.com or write a comment below.

- Introducing new revenue streams: We've always believed that journalism needs more than display advertising to support itself. With POLITICO, we'll have the strategic and organizational muscle to tap into other revenue streams.

We'll keep you posted on our progress and look forward to growing with you; whether you've been with us these last two years or are coming here for the first time today, we want to hear from you.

This page will be updated to reflect the decisions we make as we go along. Follow @capitalnewyork on Twitter to be alerted when we've updated it.
