One man ready to take on in his own backyard

gphughes-thumb-80xauto-1240Yesterday, I posted that was coming to the Atlanta metro area and ready to hire dozens of editor/reporters, including one for Paulding County, the home of run by Pat Hughes. Today I emailed Pat and asked how it might affect his operation. He responded with a vengeance in the comment section of yesterday’s post. If you haven’t already done so, take a look.

Here is a piece of what he writes:

I think the thing to keep in mind though is that because of the interactivity of the site, we not only provide the news but enrich it for the individuals reading by making its delivery a different kind of story…Just as the newspaper model cannot accomplish this kind of intimacy and ambiance, I don’t think the Patch model would either.
