One-Year-Old Internet News Service Puts Focus on Three Pocono Counties

MILFORD, PA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Monroe, Pike and Wayne are the three Pocono counties that also share the Delaware River. Putting full focus on the Poconos and Delaware Highlands is the mission of PoconoNews.Net, which has marked its first anniversary.

"We recognize the dynamic of rapid growth in a pristine rural area that make the three counties unique to all of Pennsylvania," said Hank Gross, President and CEO of Statewide News Network, Inc. "We have had great success in reporting that dynamic in neighboring New York State and believed the time was right to grow in Pennsylvania."

"We believe PoconoNews.Net is unique among websites covering the region, because of our focus," said Gross. "We report only news originating in Monroe, Pike and Wayne, or news that is clearly of importance to the three counties."

Casinos, the impact of planned power line corridors on the region and flood mitigation efforts on the Delaware River are among some of the major issues covered recently by PoconoNews.Net.

With a staff based in Milford, PoconoNews.Net is well suited to report, daily, on what is happening. Updates are posted every morning, seven days a week. Breaking news is posted as it happens.

The number of visitors has grown steadily since going online in July 2006.

PoconoNews.Net is part of the Statewide News Network, based in Middletown NY. Statewide News also publishes CatskillsNets.Com, MidHudsonNews.Com, and EmpireStateNews.Net.
