It’s been a big week for The Holly Express and I’m excited to share some great news with Holly Express readers.

A couple weeks ago, I was contacted by Karen Workman, the community engagement editor for The Oakland Press regarding a possible partnership between The Oakland Press and The Holly Express.  In addition to possibly exchanging reciprocal news feed links on our respective sites, The Oakland Press was also interested in The Holly Express providing some of Holly's  top stories to them for both print and online publication.

On Wednesday of this week, I met with Karen, Glenn Gilbert, executive editor for the Oakland Press, and Online Editor, Steve Frye, and I’m proud to announce that The Holly Express is now officially a proud partner with The Oakland Press. Not only is this a win-win scenario for both of our publications, but it represents what I believe is the future of journalism – newspapers big and small working together to provide readers with the best possible coverage.

The Oakland Press' news feed module now appears in the left rail of The Holly Express. In the weeks ahead, The Holly Express will launch a new and updated version of the website, and will continue to contribute  top Holly community stories to print editions of The Oakland Press.

As always, thank you for reading the Holly Express, and have a wonderful weekend!

This is such happy news and a very deserving advancement for you, Amy! I can't wait for you to be recognized with some big, juicy journalism award. That should be next. This online news source is all you, and it is wonderful that others in the industry are demonstrating that you and your work are a force to be reckoned with! Congratulations, my dear!

FINALLY!! It's about time the "big" guys see what you've been doing out here! This is a real notch in the belt for all the local businesses, the athletic teams, the parks - all the bounty we have, and all the hopes we share.
Not only has The Holly Express filled a huge gap on news for the locals, now we can share our triumphs and sorrows (local politics beware), we can check in on more without leaving our homepage.
Thanks and congratulations.
