Eastchester, NY. January 24, 2014 – HamletHub.com a pioneering network of 'hyperlocal' websites providing locally originated news and information to communities will soon be launching its newest hyperlocal site for the Eastchester, NY area, the company announced today.
With a full roster of sites covering most of Connecticut, HamletHub has begun its expansion to Westchester County and is proud to announce that Eastchester resident, Ashley Caputo, has agreed to become the editor of Eastchester HamletHub. According to the company's founder, Kerry Anne Ducey, establishing sites in New York was a natural next-step for the hugely popular and successful CT-based company.
"We are thrilled to welcome our neighbors in the vibrant New York village of Eastchester to HamletHub," said Ms. Ducey. "There are so many great people and businesses in the Eastchester community who deserve to have their very own forum to share neighborhood news, stories, ideas, events and best business practices. Ashley will help make Eastchester a better place." Ducey adds.
HamletHub launched the first local news "Hub" in Ridgefield in 2009 with a mission to make the world better, one HamletHub at a time. HamletHub won a prestigious Connecticut Press Club Award in 2011 and 2012.
Hamlethub sites differ from other media outlets based on their focus on the needs of the community — its residents as well as the organizations and businesses that make up the fabric of the town. Eastchester Hamlethub offers a unique opportunity for these groups to have a voice in their community, either by submitting articles to the site as a local resident, or by participating in the site's unique Article Membership service for businesses, giving them an unprecedented opportunity to tell their story and to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
Ashley is an Eastchester High School graduate that continued her education at SUNY Purchase College where she majored in journalism. After spending time writing for fashion magazines in New York City she has come back to her roots to help support local newspapers. Currently, she is working on getting high school students that are interested in journalism industry involved in HamletHub so that they too can begin learning the niche of the field and the importance of sharing local news.
Readers, contributors and advertisers will benefit from a direct line to their neighbors, and the organizations, who are the heart of the community that make Eastchester a cultural gem.
