With Latest News – North Jersey’s first and only news app – NorthJersey.com brings users important breaking news from around the world and their home town with one touch. This unique app can toggle back and forth between the top national headlines and the neighborhood news that directly affects residents.
NorthJersey.com Latest News offers the top stories from main news categories, such as sports, international and entertainment, as well as local news from every town covered by North Jersey Media Group (NJMG), the parent company of NorthJersey.com. The company publishes The Record, the premier daily in the area, more than 40 community newspapers and a family of glossy magazines – including the popular (201) Magazine, Bergen County’s first and only monthly magazine. NJMG has the most reporters in towns across Bergen, Passaic, Essex, Sussex and Hudson counties, and the Latest News app users benefit from this vast network, easily accessing news by town.
“The app’s function is to inform you quickly of major news, whether it happens internationally or in your town,” said Stephen Borg, President of NJMG. “High school sports scores are included, as well as road closures and commuting information;
basically, if you live or work in North Jersey, our app will deliver what you need to know in a timely manner so you can make the most of your day.”
NorthJersey.com has also launched Fire & Ice, a free app for iPhone based on the site’s wildly popular blog of the same name that givers users the hottest news about the New Jersey Devils hockey team from veteran reporter Tom Gulitti.
