Rogers debuts OttawaMatters.com
Rogers Media has launched a new website called OttawaMatters.com. The site will specialize in local news aimed at residents of the Ottawa area. Its content will include breaking news, feature stories, entertainment, obituaries, classified advertising, community event listings and weather reports. This content will be primarily provided by Rogers Media talk radio station 1310 News. The site will also offer live streaming video from Rogers TV Ottawa, consisting of current affairs and talk shows, as well as coverage of local sports. The site was designed in collaboration with Village Media.
"1310 News and Rogers TV take great pride in serving Ottawa audiences, and the launch of OttawaMatters.com allows us to further our investment in the community as we continue to evolve in today's shifting media landscape," said Mark Campbell, director of news programming at 1310 News. "With the recent changes in the market, we saw an opportunity to serve this community even better by expanding our local news coverage through the creation of a site dedicated to stories reflective of this region."
