Bill Macfadyen: e-Bulletin News a Growing Force for Noozhawk

We're expanding our e-mail news delivery to keep you in the know

Subscribers to Noozhawk’s free daily e-Bulletin likely noticed some modifications with Friday’s issue. We have a new vendor, RatePoint, and the switch will allow us to expand our features and involvement with our readers.

That interactivity is key because a surprising number of subscribers actually treat the e-Bulletin as Noozhawk’s home page. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but we want to ensure that what you see in our e-mail has a broader display of content to better reflect the range we have on our Web site.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t signed up for the e-Bulletin, I encourage you to do so. And tell a friend while you’re at it. Click here to get started.

Some readers may not have received Friday’s e-mail message as usual — at 4:15 a.m. — but rest assured it was a one-time glitch as our new vendor processed our 6,000 subscribers for the first time. We’ll be back on schedule Saturday, bringing you fresh, professionally reported news right to your in-box, while most of you sleep.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
