New Community for Political Junkies Open for Biz

It’s launch day for a much-anticipated multimedia venture, Politico is coming on the scene just in time as the 2008 Presidential campaign buzz kicks up with the recent announcements by Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Bill Richardson and several others.

Here's their welcome note.

They were out the gate with a great welcome video.
Tonight is the President’s State of the Union and Politico is supposed to be up and running to cover it all.

I just learned today that Allbritton Communications, a privately-held company that owns Birmingham’s ABC 33/40 is a major backer for this new venture. That means we’ll see it draw on the resources of Washington DC’s WJLA-Channel 7’s and their hyperlocal. NewsChannel 8.

Politico is not just a Website, but a newspaper and a web-based TV program. It’s going to be awesome to follow this as it launches.

I can’t wait to see it all unfold.
