As a former writer for UptownMessenger.com, I’m delighted to share the news that a new sister site, based in Mid-City, has officially been launched. MidCityMessenger.com is now live, covering news, crime, events, and politics across one of the largest and most diverse neighborhoods in New Orleans (and, incidentally, the one I call home — so I’m quite happily biased for a handful of reasons).
Bringing the same professionalism to local news coverage as the Uptown Messenger, the Mid-City Messenger will be staffed primarily by Marta Jewson, an experienced reporter with a passion both for journalistic excellence and the city of New Orleans. More details are available on the website itself, its Facebook page, and its Twitter feed, but if you live in the area, the most important thing to do is to become a regular reader, commenter, and active member of the neighborhood. The health and strength both of Mid-City and of the city as a whole depends on it.
