Today marks the official union of Bergen-Passaic Daily Voice with CLIFFVIEW PILOT. Say hello to DV Pilot.
No one could've predicted when I launched CLIFFVIEW PILOT in June 2009 that I'd one day find a bigger and better news operation with the same goals as mine -- to tell you in real time what's happening in YOUR community.
Like CVP, Daily Voice demands honesty, accuracy and fairness. That's why law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, teachers and other public servants will continue to receive the respect and attention that they deserve.
Like CVP, it has no "gotcha" stories, no secret affiliations or hidden agendas. We're here to build up, not tear down.
It's optimized for mobile, so that whatever platform is best for you is best for us. We also have daily e-blasts and breaking news bulletins that are a mailbox must.
Our not-so-secret weapon: You, your friends, your neighbors, people upon whom we rely to keep us in the loop.
When you see or hear something, email or call me. Same thing if a tip or rumor needs checking out. If you've got the scoop on something that happened minutes ago, get hold of me RIGHT NOW.
Also feel free to reach out with any questions or comments -- and, especially, suggestions.
It was an intense stretch of nearly 7 years on the PILOT -- head-down, hard-driving, all day/every day.
The hottest independent breaking news site in the country succeeded on levels that I could've never imagined -- and I'm not just talking about a record 30-day stretch of 1.7 million page views in the heat of last summer.
I'm here to give you what you're looking for: what happened where, when, how and why.
