Friday, August 10, 2012
But upstart GoLocalProv - the RI-based media company - crashed the proverbial gala and was selected Best Statewide Local Website.
"We are excited to receive such a great honor. We are competing against some of the biggest media companies in the country, but we believe we are able to succeed due to our commitment to high-quality local content," said Co-Founder and CEO Josh Fenton.
GoLocalProv.com features a staff that includes weatherman John Ghiorse, sports editors Scott Cordischi and John Rooke, features editor Tracey Minkin and a news team lead by Dan McGowan and Stephen Beale.
The statewide website launched in 2010 and quickly established itself as a leader in investigative journalism, breaking the biggest news stories and offering the widest range of lifestyle of everything Rhode Island.
In late 2011, GoLocalProv.com launched GoLocalTV, a daily video news broadcast. In the past year, GoLocalProv has grown by more than 500% and now delivers more than 2.3 million pageviews per month.
"We are committed to building a great company in Rhode Island and appreciate the support we have received. This is a great recognition of our talented team's effort," said Fenton.
