Serving the Reston (Va.) community, Reston Now is helmed by Karen Goff, a long-time Reston resident who most recently worked as a local editor for Patch.com. Before transitioning to digital journalism, Goff was a feature writer and sports reporter for the Washington Times, and a metro reporter for the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel.
“I am so excited to work with Local News Now,” Goff said. “In my more than three years with Patch I learned how valuable hyperlocal news is to communities. Reston has really embraced online, up-to-the-minute news, and working with a locally-owned company will give residents the voice and outlet they need.”
“Reston deserves a local news source that’s focused solely on what’s going on Reston,” said Scott Brodbeck, founder of Local News Now. “We’ll be reporting on the stories that impact the daily lives of Reston residents — everything from restaurant openings to local government, development, schools, crime and the Silver Line.”
As a local, independent online news publisher, Local News Now is devoted to building a sustainable future for local journalism in the D.C. area. We believe in quality coverage of local communities by talented local journalists, supported by affordable, effective advertising and marketing services for local businesses and organizations.
