BrooWaha Whips Into New York

arielsquint.jpgOur favorite homegrown citizen journalism site, BrooWaha, is expanding its reach to New York.

FBLA wrote about the 6-month-old Web site when it first launched and noted founder/editor Ariel Vardi’s desire for the site to be *the* super-local news spot of Los Angeles.

While Old Media-types scoffed, Vardi quietly met his goals. On the site he writes:

“I have personally noticed a significant increase in the overall quality of the writing on the website. For instance, BrooWaha has published several local celebrity interviews which have been picked up by other news media outlets. Some of them have also been integrated into Wikipedia, the largest free online encyclopedia.”
