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.
