VA. Site Capitalizes On Comments, Curio

By: Michael Depp | NetNewsCheck.com

Look into the cockpit of many independent hyperlocal sites across the country and you’ll find refugees from legacy print media behind the wheel, but not in Arlington, Va. Scott Brodbeck, the editor and publisher of ARLNow.com, cut his teeth in broadcasting before starting the site in early 2010, and he said that television was the perfect training ground for his current work.

“I think broadcasting is a great background to come from because you’re already used to a more fast-paced working style, shorter stories and you know how to handle breaking news,” Brodbeck said, “so TV to the Web wasn’t a huge transition.”
