Welcome to AnnArbor.com; watch our tutorial on how to use the site
Welcome to AnnArbor.com.
After all the planning, input and speculation, we’re glad to be live, and we thank you for visiting our site.
We’re in our infancy, but we have great aspirations. We want to be the easiest and most comprehensive way for you to get local news and advertising. We want to be your connection to the community and everything about it that makes Ann Arbor such a great place to live.
In fact, we’ve said from the beginning that we are of, by and for the community. The site we launched today was shaped by your input. And while we’re still very much in beta, we promise to continue to involve the community in every way as we grow and develop.
Everything we do here starts with a commitment to local news. We have a staff of trained, professional journalists out pounding the pavement. You’ll find their coverage by clicking on news topics on the right-hand side of our home page, such as Government, Education, Crime or Business Review.
We’re also proud to have hired a stable of talented, experienced sports reporters to cover everything from Michigan football to high school athletics. You’ll find that by clicking on our topics as well.
Whether in news or sports, our reporters have traditional journalistic skills - but they also know how to use the tools of new media to offer immediacy and constant updates. Their work is complemented by contributions and conversation from the community.
Here at AnnArbor.com, we want you to have a good experience when you visit us. Our goal is a site that’s intuitive and easy to use. We invite you to watch our tutorial to learn your way around the site. And we welcome your feedback. Tell us what you think by sending us an e-mail or by commenting directly on this post.
And while we’re glad to have you here on our site, and hope you’ll visit often, don’t forget that we also offer newsletters, which you can sign up for by clicking here. We’ll also be publishing a newspaper every Thursday and Sunday. Our first print edition will appear this Sunday, July 26.
Online or in print, we want to be your complete source of local news, advertising and community connection. Ann Arbor is an ideal place to innovate. The future of local journalism is being shaped here, and we thank you for joining us in this adventure.
