Greaterpatchogue.com is going broadcast in 2017.
Well, sort of.
You’ll still find the same timely, engaging and well-written local news features published daily to Long Island’s fastest-growing news website.
Our popular events coverage and 20 Photos posts will remain intact.
But we’ll be making a big push for video news content, such as the Harbor Crab Co.’s Kris Kringle night that was shot and produced by professional journalist Nicholas Esposito.
Greaterpatchogue.com is recruiting other broadcast journalists as well.
We’ll also have paid content. These are commercials, essentially, that will come in the form of 1- to 2-minute Food Network or Travel Channel-type shows that showcase local businesses, restaurants, and more.
One show will be called Nosh On This and the first episode will be released next week.
Aside from being promotional, Nosh on This will seek to better inform readers about their local foodstuffs and the people that make them.
Our series featuring non-food related businesses will be called How We Do.
This will all fall under the umbrella of Greater Patchogue TV, or GPTV.
“I’ve long thought about how to present, and fund, quality video content through greaterpatchogue.com,” said publisher and founder Michael White. “What we’ve come up with is a unique, modern approach to pairing news content and paid content that is sure to delight our local readers.
“The end result will be a Patchogue-based news outlet with full print and broadcast capabilities — all presented digitally, and on a level that’s beyond hyper local.”
