When I joined The Gazette Families of Companies, later known as SourceMedia Group, and The Gazette Company starting around 2014, I helped launch a network of topical websites that shared news around topical areas. You may even call them newspaper beats. They were public safety, government, prep sports, lifestyle, school information, higher education, business and health.

The sites encouraged community-contributed article and received thousands of them. Eventually all the sites were folded back into the main newspaper website at TheGazette.comΒ and the company in essence stopped accepting community-contributed commented across most of these areas.
