UPDATE: Well placed sources have revealed to us that staffers at The Washington Post have been discussing the story of the Baltimore Examiner reporters returning. The source tells us the staffers viewed The Baltimore Spectator and the site was passed around among editorial management.
Record page views and new readers continue to flood The Baltimore Spectator as people from around the world visit to learn the future of The Baltimore Examiner. In the story first broken here, we revealed before any of the Baltimore mainstream media, that some of the staff of the Baltimore Examiner, namely Stephen Janis, Luke Broadwater and editor Regina Holmes are planning a resurrection.
To date, this site has been linked to, and visited by more people in a single day, than ever before, because of this story. We literally have seen folks from Europe, Asia, even South America view the piece. Truly, the power and reach of the web is fascinating. Even on a story we thought was "ultra local."
Thanks to readers like you for driving us forward. We hope you continue to visit and tell your friends about our unique little contribution to the way news is distributed. Thank you DCRTV.com for being the first to link and to all the rest of you also, too numerous to name.
I should also add, folks from all of the local media outlets have also been visiting The Baltimore Spectator.
