The news in Davidson

David Boraks:

Many are talking about “hyperlocal” websites as the future of local news. But we're not the future of local news. We're the present.

The big metro daily in our region -- The Charlotte Observer, where I once worked -- has all but eliminated suburban coverage. One local weekly newspaper recently folded, and other publications don’t cover our town. At many town meetings, I am the only reporter (and sometimes the only citizen) in the room.

Without our site, there would be no local news.

(What he won.)
