The last days of 2012 brought about the end of the News & Messenger, Prince William County’s lone remaining newspaper that traced its origins back 143 years. This left the county without a print newspaper, but not for long. On January 10, Prince William Today, a weekly newspaper published by Northern Virginia Media Services, will see its inaugural issue hit the streets. NVMS also owns Leesburg Today and the Arlington and Fairfax Sun Gazette newspapers.
PW Today has purchased the InsideNOVA.com website and Facebook page (which has over 27,000 followers.) Several staffers from the N&M will be moving over to PW Today, so you can depend on continuity and consistency from the people who know our community the best.
Now for the announcement. I have accepted an offer extended by Kari Pugh, Editor of PW Today / InsideNOVA.com, to write a regular op-ed column for the paper with a focus on local issues or a local take on national issues. I will continue to post here at Virtucon, but will also have exclusive content written specifically for PW Today that I will link to from here. Look for my first column in the paper’s debut issue.
In the meantime, if you haven’t already “Liked” InsideNOVA.com on Facebook, head on over and do so now.
