The Echo partners with Huff Po
The Colby Echo is proud to announce that it will be joining a group of 50 other college newspapers selected to participate in The Huffington Post's new college news vertical.
The Huffington Post is one of the largest and most popular news aggregate sites on the Internet and is now dedicating an entire page to college newspapers and blogs. College newspapers like the Echo generally only have a niche readership: current students and faculty, alumni and others close to the community. By collecting the best articles from a variety of campus news sources and promoting them on such a large-scale news aggregate, the Post will provide many student papers with new readers that they may have never been exposed to otherwise.
The Post has already begun providing stories. Its website links readers directly to the college newspapers' featured stories on individual colleges' websites. Check out The Huffington Post's college news aggregate at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/college.
