When Ted Mann started Gannett’s InJersey hyperlocal news sites two years ago, he wanted them to become a nexus of community conversation. He envisioned that about half of the sites’ content would come from Gannett staffers and half would come from local community members.

That didn’t happen, though; there were not enough community contributions or enough Gannett staffers to keep the sites going.

Just a week after Gannett’s latest round of layoffs, Mann announced on Wednesday that he had decided to close the sites.
