We are happy to announce today that we will be joining a partnership with the Seattle Times as part of their network of community news websites. (See the other sites here.)
This is not an acquisition or anything remotely like that, but instead, a collaboration between the Times and local independent news sites to make use of the strengths of each organization and improve news coverage for all of our readers. We remain independent as always.
We look forward to serving our neighbors on Beacon Hill better through this partnership, and we’re excited about the possibilities of this journalistic collaboration between old (the Times has been around for more than a century) and new media (the BHB has been around since October 2008, in a medium—blogging—that didn’t even exist 15 years ago).
