Welcome back, Kimberli Hagelberg
THE DIGITAL AGE is adding a new voice to Fairlawn-Bath news coverage. It's called Patch and is part of the local news system created by AOL across the country. The editor of the online report is veteran newswoman Kimberli Hagelberg, former Beacon Journal and WCPN reporter. Kim says she will be working with freelance correspondents as well as covering news events herself to put out the daily news page on your computer screen. It will not only provide text, but also videos. And, yes, AOL will be developing advertising for the page. AOL's website site for Patch (Patch.com) says coverage will be "community specific". Look for it soon. In the shrinking news business, there's plenty of room for one more voice.
