Founded in Ballard in early 2008 by two longtime journalists, Kate and Cory Bergman, Next Door Media is committed to creating a community-powered approach to local journalism while providing sustainable value for advertisers.
Unlike many blogs, Next Door Media’s sites are authored by experienced journalists who produce original, objective news coverage. Next Door Media’s MyBallard.com won a 2009 Online Journalism Award for community collaboration, beating the LA Times and Miami Herald for the award. And PhinneyWood.com won the national Sigma Delta Chi Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for deadline reporting.
The network sites include MyBallard.com, QueenAnneView.com, MagnoliaVoice.com, FremontUniverse.com, MapleLeafLife.com, WedgwoodView.com, MyWallingford.com and UDistrictDaily.com. PhinneyWood.com is a partner site.
