Hot off the heels of introducing our first broadcast partner to the platform last Thursday, we are excited to announce today our newest partner on the East Coast, The Virginian-Pilot.
The Virginian-Pilot delivers local news to several cities across southeast Virginia, including Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth and Suffolk. Now, The Pilot will be joining the neighborhood conversation on Nextdoor, making their delivery of news more local than ever.
The Pilot has been the voice of Southeast Virginia since 1865 and is Virginia’s largest daily newspaper. It is dedicated to delivering the news that matters most to Virginians. Since Nextdoor members discuss the topics – and news – that matter most to them on Nextdoor, it was a natural fit to partner with The Pilot.
The Virginian-Pilot will be able to directly connect with over 1,100 neighborhoods on Nextdoor. Like other news partners, The Pilot’s stories will appear in Nextdoor newsfeeds across Southeast Virginia, as well as members’ Daily Digests. The Pilot’s editorial team can see and respond to replies to their posts; however, the rest of the neighborhood conversations remain private for the verified members of each community.
The Pilot will share inspiring stories that spark important local conversations, encouraging neighbors to continue discussing the topics that matter most to their communities. They will also be able to post polls and open ended questions to learn from residents what issues matter most to them, and to help elevate the neighborhood voice in the stories they publish.
We are thrilled to welcome The Pilot to Nextdoor, and look forward to a successful partnership!
