Almost three months ago we broke the news that AOL was expanding its network of Patch local news websites into the D.C. area. Last week, the Washington Post picked up the story, noting that AOL was posting dozens of help wanted listings on jobs website Simply Hired.
A search of those listings reveals that, so far, Patch is not seeking editors for an Arlington site.
Patch is also coming to some communities around Arlington. Simply Hired lists editor positions for Patch sites in McLean, Falls Church, Del Ray, Old Town Alexandria and Georgetown.
Patch will be entering some small markets that are already covered by multiple dedicated news outlets.
Arlington is served by the Sun Gazette and the Arlington Connection weekly newspapers and this website. Falls Church is served by the Falls Church News Press weekly newspaper and the Falls Church Times website. Georgetown is served by The Georgetowner biweekly newspaper and The Georgetown Dish website.
