We Are Changing Our Format

This blog was started as a public service to help keep folks informed about things going on in our world.  That “world” started out as Greater Pottstown but expanded to include the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (and sometimes our next door neighbors New Jersey and Delaware).

WE ARE 100% NON-PROFIT.  With more and more newspapers requiring paid subscriptions or offering only restricted access it has become increasing difficult to share information.  We have no budget, we have no advertisers or sponsors to offset these costs.  Therefore, effective immediately, we are only going to publish press releases, event flyers or original content.

As much as this saddens us, news access is going to continue to shrink without paid subscriptions.  This is a hobby, not a business.

We will continue to share news on our Facebook page because “sharing” information that way is kosher and free for now, apparently.  Our page can be found by clicking this link if you aren’t familiar with it

We have to roll with the changing times and we thank you for your support since 2009.  Hopefully these changes will keep us around a while longer.

When the latest quarterly radio ratings for the Philadelphia market were released this week, one station’s numbers really jumped off the page.

KYW Newsradio (1060 AM) had its share of listeners drop by a dismaying 54 percent over three months from February through April, a period that was relatively stable for its competitors, according to figures from the rating service Nielsen Audio.

The obvious explanation would be vernal. As Philadelphians go from February to April, and the likelihood of school closings and transit delays fades, listening to the all-news station becomes less essential.
