Dear col­leagues,

Newsday’s news­room is hiring!

In a big step for­ward on boost­ing our local cov­er­age, dur­ing the next six months we will hire 34 new jour­nal­ists for our news­room and dig­i­tal teams, and add 2,600 pages of addi­tional news and opin­ion to our news­pa­per annu­ally. I’m very excited to announce that we are mak­ing this sig­nif­i­cant invest­ment in peo­ple and pages to pro­vide more and stronger cov­er­age for Long Islanders.

Many ini­tia­tives will increase town and local cov­er­age in print and pro­vide our online audi­ence with more updates and faster cov­er­age of break­ing news around the clock. They include:
* Adding to the num­ber of town reporters

* Dou­bling the num­ber of Long Island news pages in News­day each day

* Upping the num­ber of regional zoned edi­tions of Sunday’s LI Life to pro­vide more local­ized town news and information.

        Is there life – or work – after news­pa­pers? A lot of us are in the process of find­ing out. Because it’s gen­er­ally a some­what lonely endeavor, it struck me, in Jan­u­ary 2010, that it might be com­fort­ing – and pos­si­bly very pro­duc­tive – to go through it together.

        Dis­placed Jour­nal­ists is a com­mu­nity – our com­mu­nity – where we find com­mon ground, where we can begin to pick our­selves up, dust our­selves off and get on with our lives and liveli­hoods. [more]
