Welcome, Orange County Local News Network
FIRST "O.C. NOW"
Back on January 20th I mentioned the birth of a couple new sources of local news soon to be available to us here in the Newport-Mesa. The first, which I linked at that time, was the O.C. NOW site. You'll find the link over on the right side of this page.
NOW "ORANGE COUNTY LOCAL NEWS NETWORK"
The second new source is the Orange County Local News Network, (OCLNN), which launched yesterday, February 1st.
PART OF A GROWING NETWORK
This organization, part of the broader United States Local News Network (USLNN), is the third such site under that umbrella. The others cover San Diego and Southwest Riverside. They are domiciled in the same Sunflower Street building that houses the staff of the Daily Pilot and, it is my understanding, that they will cross-post stories with the Pilot. This is good news, since the diminished staff of the Pilot has had trouble covering all the bases in recent months.
A/P AND CITY NEWS SERVICE COVERAGE INCLUDED
They will also include stories from the Associated Press and City News Service, which gives them significant breadth of reporting.
LINK OVER ON THE RIGHT
I've included a link to this new source immediately under the O.C. NOW site over on the right. If you want to read the introductory essay, "Hello, Orange County!" by Managing Editor Greg Magnus click HERE.
Welcome to the OCLNN. We hope it becomes a reliable, accurate and timely source of news for us all. We here at A Bubbling Cauldron wish them all the best.
