Years after the fall of the their local newspaper, residents of Bethel have reason to celebrate.Patch
This week the online news outlet Bethel Patch. Here's the details on the new place for local news:
Patch will update you on Bethel news, sports, arts and more. It also gives you the ability to upload your own events and announcements, find local businesses using our free directory and have discussions about local issues by commenting on stories. You can also continue the conversation by interacting with Patch on Facebook and Twitter.
Overall, I'm excited to bring Patch to Bethel because it provides users with online news that mixes exciting new media methods with traditional journalism ethics and practices.
Hoping to give the News-Times a run for their money, the freelance crew at the Bethel Patch is set to fill the journalism void that's plagued the town over the last couple of years...and don't be surprised to see my name in a byline from time to time.
...and don't worry, the Patch is set to open shop in Danbury and bring back some LONG OVERDUE reporting to Hat City REAL soon.
