First thank you! You, our readers, have made the Eagle i initiative an unquantifiable success.
In January, reader submissions were more than double any month prior — at least in my time here. In February, January’s results doubled again. So, it’s only logic that we take that next collaborative step together.
On March 27, we’re turning the entire issue of the Eagle over to the i’s. That’s right, from the front page picture to the very last article; you’ll be working with Marco Eagle content editors, to produce the entire product.
Thanks to you, we’ve been able to engage the community like never before and bring you an unprecedented amount of coverage. We may be a small town newspaper, but we have a staff of hundreds, making sure that no stone goes unturned. You are defining the way information will be shared in the world of tomorrow, and other newspapers are taking notice.
So keep up the good work. Keep the copy and photos coming because Eagle I’s are here to stay.
Mark this date on your calendar. If you’d like to be part of this special issue, have your copy or photos turned in by March 24. We’re looking for a cover photo, people willing to share a byline with our content editors, and people who want to write news articles, compelling stories and photos about Marco Island.
