The citizen journalists will be recruited from some 22 postal codes in the paper’s circulation area. The story adds:

While the 22 sites currently have around 400 registered contributors, the paper is planning to recruit a host of new bloggers and community correspondents…New contributors will be approached by the Gazette’s two community coordinators, who are responsible for moderating and posting additional content to the sites.
