At Patch.com we’re radically reinventing community journalism. We launched in February 2009, currently operate over 90 local community news and information sites, and are rapidly expanding to hundreds of markets and towns across the country! With just over a year in operation, we’ve already won acclaim in the industry and coverage in the New York Times, Forbes, Newsweek, Bloomberg, NPR’s “talk of the nation”, “the news hour with Jim Lehrer”, and numerous industry blogs and web sites. In June of 2009 we were acquired by AOL Ventures. Well funded, and led by a management team of leaders in each of their respective fields, Patch is poised to become the largest pure-play local news and information platform employing professional journalists–and we’re always looking to hire bright new Patchers!
