Village Media continues to expand its network of media outlets across Ontario with the launch of independent news site BarrieToday.com, located in Barrie, Ontario.
BarrieToday will bring locally-driven news in real time to Barrie and Simcoe County. Readers will access breaking news on their computers, tablets and mobile phones, whenever they want it, wherever they are.
BarrieToday is part of the Village Media network, which operates some of the largest online news sites in the communities they serve.
The sites are driven by news and information that appeals to a highly engaged, loyal audience.
BarrieToday will offer breaking news, feature stories, editorials, and other content from the region. The most current news will be posted throughout the day, as well as national news provided by Canadian Press.
“BarrieToday is about providing ‘hyper-local’ news and information in real time,” said Jeff Elgie, CEO of Village Media. “We are proud to be extremely community-minded and cover all the important stories in your city. We are very excited to continue growing a successful business model, as we expand into Barrie. We have a great team in place and look forward to becoming an integrated part of the community’s daily news.”
The BarrieToday newsroom includes experienced journalists Robin MacLennan and Sue Sgambati. Robin has been a reporter, photographer and editor for the daily media in Barrie, Orillia and Toronto for many years. Sue has had a 30-year career in journalism working for print, radio and TV. Both are proud members of the Barrie community.
