Borderstan is Back

by Tim Regan June 1, 2015 at 9:00 am 4 Comments

Good morning. Borderstan is back.

We probably look a little different than you remember. That’s because, in April, Local News Now LLC, the publisher of ARLnow.com, acquired Borderstan from founders Matt Rhoades and Luis Gomez. Since then, we’ve worked with Matt and Luis to map out how we can build upon what locals loved about the site the first time around.

And based on what we’ve come up with, we think you’ll be pleased.

Moving forward, we plan to cover everything Matt and Luis did well, from arts and entertainment, crime and politics, to local businesses and dining. We’ll also add to that mix up-to-date breaking neighborhood news coverage in a large swath of Northwest D.C., which includes the areas around Dupont Circle and Logan Circle, up to U Street, Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights.

Our site editor is Tim Regan, who has covered local news, restaurants, oddities and the arts for Washington Post Express, Washington City Paper and Thrillist, among others. He’ll occasionally be assisted by Andrew Ramonas, the editor of our sister site, Hill Now, Local News Now managing editor Bryan Doyle and a stable of stalwart freelance contributors.

Have a suggestion? Want to contribute? Drop us a line at [email protected]. Or, if you have an idea for a story we should write, call our tip line at 202-930-3546 to leave a message about what’s going on in your neighborhood. Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook, and check back with us frequently. We’ll be updating the site daily.

    Good. It’s nice to have another voice. I may be expected to say welcome back but Luis and Matt had such a wonderful blog that they’re a tough act to follow! Congratulations to them for selling and to ArlNow for the acquisition. Good luck to the new Borderstan.

      Lisa, thank you for the kind words. We were very happy to sell to Local News Now. They are going to do a great job.

    Wonderful! I love DCist and POPVille, but it will be great having a blog devoted to my area.

    Will there be coverage of Lupe’s activities, I hope?
