Seven Days launches new politics blog
Seven Days, Vermont’s free, independent weekly newspaper, has launched a new politics and news blog called “Off Message.” The new blog replaces Blurt, the Seven Days Staff Blog, as the go-to source for breaking news and politics.
“The goal of Off Message is to go beyond press releases, talking points and campaign spin to hold elected leaders accountable on the issues that matter to Vermonters,” said Seven Days news editor Andy Bromage. “While other local media are putting their news behind paywalls, we’re creating an up-to-the-moment information source that’s totally free.”
Off Message will give readers a daily dose of Vermont politics and news in between weekly print issues. Readers will find the latest news on campaigns, elections and government — plus video, photos and other multimedia features — at www.7d.blogs.com/offmessage. Longer, web-only news features will be published on the main Seven Days website, www.sevendaysvt.com.
Da Capo Publishing Inc., dba Seven Days, was founded by Pamela Polston and Paula Routly in 1995. In addition to its free publications, the company also produces two annual events: Vermont Restaurant Week and the Vermont Tech Jam, a job fair and tech expo.
In 2000, the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce selected then-5-year-old Seven Days as Business of the Year. Eight years later, the Burlington Business Association did the same, citing the company's exemplary business practices, contributions to the community, and promotion of a positive image for Burlington, as well as business success.
