InsideSources, a syndication network and wire service based in Washington, D.C., is pleased to announce the acquisition of NH Journal, a popular digital news hub for politicos in New Hampshire and across the U.S.
NH Journal gives InsideSources a foothold in the Granite State as we look ahead to an exciting year in politics. The site was previously managed by John DiStaso, known as the Dean of the New Hampshire press corps. InsideSources will infuse new life and daily coverage to the site, which has largely been dormant since DiStaso’s departure in 2015.
The InsideSources team is very excited to begin managing a storied news outlet that has become part of the fiber of New Hampshire politics. American voters are once again looking to New Hampshire as a bellwether for 2016, and we look forward to providing fresh, interesting and exclusive coverage to all those tracking the state’s politics.
InsideSources will begin publishing content on the site immediately, providing content on the upcoming New Hampshire primary, the campaigns, this weekend’s ABC News debate, in addition to coverage of the U.S. Senate race and other 2016 contests. Readers will find news reports on NHJournal.com from the InsideSources team both in Washington and on the ground in New Hampshire.
We are just starting this process integrating NH Journal into our company, and we’ll have more announcements in the months ahead.
Today’s acquisition is the latest in a series of expansions for InsideSources. In December 2015, we signed a wire service distribution agreement with the Associated Press, expanding our reach and audience. InsideSources has experienced exponential growth in readership since launching in April 2014. Our syndication network distributes to 300 newspapers, and content circulation now tops 24 million readers each month. On a regular basis, an article appearing on InsideSources will be read by more people than if the same story was published in The New York Times.
It is little wonder why. We have assembled a talented team of reporters. Our reporting projects have been published by Huffington Post, Barron’s, Fox News, Philadelphia Inquirer, and Washington Times.
We’ve known from the beginning that as a startup, we can’t compete with media giants by parroting the same, often-wrong, conventional wisdom that is the hallmark of our competitors. We rely on smart sources and thorough research. The stories we’ve written show that a small, scrappy startup can produce content that is a step ahead of our giant competitors.
There is a lot of growth in store for InsideSources and NH Journal as we look to offer our online readers and newspaper partners more high-quality, forward-looking coverage of politics and policy.
