AOL-owned Patch.com was one of many employers represented at the recent National Association of Black Journalists annual convention in San Diego. Patch is a network of websites created to fill the gap in local and community news, says Holly Edgell, a regional editor for the company who is based in St. Louis.
The good news for NABJ members is that Patch.com is growing, which means they’re hiring. According to Edgell, Patch.com already has 85 sites and is looking for local editors in areas including California, Massachusetts, Washington, D.C., Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New York, Virginia and Connecticut.
