Ron Mills- To become an Editor For Broward News- Topix.com

This week, I became an editor for Topix.com. I will be editing the Broward County Florida News Page. I have used a domain owned by me http://BrowardNews.org to re-direct to the topix.com Broward Page. Please visit the page and forward any comments to editor@BrowardNews.org

Topix is a news aggregator which categorizes news stories by topic and geography. It was created by the founders of the Open Directory Project. In March 2005, the Knight Ridder (later taken over by The McClatchy Company), Tribune Company and Gannett media companies purchased a 75% share of the company.[1] On April 1, 2007, it acquired the topix.com. Over 100 journalists and editors from various newspapers are already editors.[2]

Topix has gone on to create a community news platform, and popular forum system, allowing users to comment on news articles and the goings on of local communities.[3]

What is Topix.com?

Topix is the world's largest community news website. You can read, talk about the news on over 360,000 of our news pages. Whatever your interests are, we have a news page for you!
