Cape Cod TODAY, Plymouth Daily News and CommunityDailyNews.com
After selling the BRG Franchise Corp. in 1998, I turned all my attention to the internet which I knew even back then would replace untold print publications, especially regional newspapers.
Best Read Guide was the first print media on Cape Cod to offer an online version in 1996, and my daughter-in-law Julie Brooks who heads up eCape.com and I launched Cape Cod TODAY which was quickly followed by a half dozen niche portals to appeal to parents & child, pets & their owners, vacations, etc.
CC Today grew expontenitally at between 20 and 30% yearly until in 2010 we launched our first additional newssite, Plymouth Daily News, to cover the South Shore of Massachusetts as well.
In doing so Julie and I joined forces with a longtime newspaper friend, Louise "Lou" Phelps, to created similar newssites in Georgia, and the three of us founded a new franchise company to offer the Cape Cod Today and Plymouth Daily News format to anyone who wanted to start their own newssites anywhere else.
The new company is called CommunityDailyNews.com.
