ICYMI, https://t.co/hr9hIkgahU let go myself and the remaining staff today. Unhappy ending to a fun run. I loved my time with the News-Sentinel team. We did some great stuff in this 10 and a half month second life and I appreciate the opportunities. On to the next one. pic.twitter.com/jrl7wxUT8f

Though, the digital news operation plans to continue to publish editorial content, according to our partners in news at ABC 21. The organization also reports stringers, another word for freelance reporters, may be used to enhance coverage on an as-needed basis.
News-Sentinel officials say broad coverage of the community will continue.
