Just an update…
Hey Readers: I just wanted to let you know where things are with “10Valley”. Since we launched the site a little over a year ago, as a sub-site, inside the “CoolStateLA.com” site at Cal State LA, I’ve been blown away by the thoughtful and compelling stories and posts we’ve received. We haven’t had a full time reporter/editor to work on the site for a couple of months, but I think that is about to change.
The important thing here is that while we are operating this site out of the Cal State LA University Times Newsroom, we really, really want your input!
If you know of things we should know about, email me personally at jbeaupr (at) exchange.calstatela.edu.
There are so many issues affecting the SGV that don’t get covered, it is our hope that YOU can contribute to content.
We really admire our friends at the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, but their budgets have been slashed and they are expected to cover everything from car accidents to high school proms. The idea for this site has been and will continue to be ‘from the ground up’ – we don’t need to tell you, from our academic pedestal, what is going on in the SGV. You are living these stories every day.
We want the prom stories.
But we also want to know what is happening with water regulations.
We want to know how freeways affect your life – good and bad.
We want to know about the Vietnamese bakery you have found that serves the perfect Bahn Mi.
We want to know about the crazy-assed band you saw in El Monte last week.
So pile it on! No spam. No commercial messages.
Just open your eyes and tell us what you see, hear, smell, and taste!
I’m really eager to hear from you, so send us some stories, story ideas, and leads. We can help you follow up on important stories in some cases.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
