DescriptionOn June 1 2006 when John T. Ward and his wife Trish Russoniello launched redbankgreen a hyperlocal news site for Red Bank New Jersey Ward says that he had little idea what to expect. With the help of Russoniello a graphic artist Ward had designed a bare-bones website on Typepad and the morning of the launch e-mailed a few friends about his new venture. By day’s end there had been a modest 300 hits but Ward a former newspaper reporter and freelance magazine journalist was enthusiastic nonetheless. It was utterly thrilling” he says of the site’s first day.
