West Orlando News follows a daily online newspaper format, and is made up of several sections, much like a newspaper. From the front page, our readers can access each section.
West Orlando News Online was born in September 2005 and emerged from a print publication to a now, entirely digital one. West Orlando News has emerged as a leader in both hyperlocal news, commentary and the online citizen journalism movement.
The site receives more than 200,000 visits monthly, serving nearly 2.1 million pages a month, and is managed by Gillian Nanton. It has been featured in stories by Columbia Journalism Review and is a founding member of Authentically Local.
The biggest contributors to the site are our readers — their active participation has turned West Orlando News into a true online community and the logical source for breaking local news, politics, and a left of center perspective on the world we call, Orlando, Florida.
West Orlando News Strategic Alliances
West Orlando News is interested in forging relationships with media partners, big and small. We can offer technical and business infrastructure to journalists wishing to start new sites that have synergy with ours — in exchange for a share of revenues. Large media companies interested in expanding into our geographic area should contact us about possibilities for leveraging our brand. We are always interested in talking to venture capitalists seeking to invest in the hyperlocal media space.
