One year. One city. Endless opportunities.

Detroit's new newspaper

It looks like the new Detroit Daily Press will start publishing in less than two weeks.

I know several folks now on staff; good news people all. Should be interesting.

According to the Associated Press:

Brothers Mark and Gary Stern said Friday they'll start publishing The Detroit Daily Press on Nov. 23, selling it for 50 cents daily and $1 on Sundays. Home delivery starts Nov. 30.

The paper's 60 full-time employees are using the former offices of The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak, which moved.

The Sterns ran daily newspapers in Detroit in 1964 and 1967; New York in 1978; and Minneapolis in 1980 when workers at those cities' major newspapers went on strike.

The paper's new site is here and its Facebook fan page is here.
