No one could have known when Daily Voice of Bergen and Passaic arrived in September that so many people would respond so enthusiastically.
But our collection of 22 local community news sites in both counties continues to grow and flourish — thanks to you.
We've listened and you've told us that you want to know more about your town, your community, your neighborhood than any other media has given you.
You want breaking news in real time as it happens. You want the “digital town green,” one that appreciates and understands you and your neighbors.
That's why you reacted so strongly to stories such as these:
It's why you open our daily e-blasts and breaking bulletins, why you flock to our Facebook pages, why you comment so often and with such conviction.
We resolve to bring you even more in 2016. Plus, we'll be having receptions throughout the year like our November open house at the Ridgewood office ( SEE: Daily Voice Celebrates New Jersey Arrival With Reception ).
We also encourage you to participate even more.
When you see or hear something, email or call us. Same thing if a tip or rumor needs checking out. If you’ve got the scoop on something that happened minutes ago, get hold of one of us RIGHT NOW.
Also feel free to reach out with any questions or comments — and, especially, suggestions.
If you’re interested we’ll show you around the office (wait’ll you see the view).
If you run a business, ask us about advertising. We reach a lot of eyeballs -- and are adding more and more every day.
Thank you for welcoming Daily Voice so warmly. Thank you for all of your contributions, each of which we consider special. Join us as we make media history in 2016.
May this be a healthy, joyous New Year for you and your loved ones.
