TAP into The BReeze is an extension of the newspaper, providing an online and daily opportunity to get local news to residents. Audrey is a four-year resident of Somerset County herself.
Audrey said, "I have been covering Bridgewater specifically for four years now, and I am excited to have another opportunity to provide residents with the news they are looking for each and every day about this town and neighboring Raritan, which has its own wealth of history and news."
The site covers Bridgewater and Raritan specifically, and includes some county news as well.
She continued, "I love owning and publishing such a treasured monthly newspaper in town, and the chance to expand that to a website was something I had been looking for for a while. Having this website will allow me to provide even more timely coverage for residents looking for information in between publications of the newspaper itself."
Audrey added, "There is always something going on in both Bridgewater and Raritan, and people deserve to have that information as quickly as possible. I have always been a constant presence at local municipal meetings (sometimes the only one there), and I have always felt welcomed and accepted as a trusted local news source in town. I am excited to have the chance to bring those photos and that information directly into people's homes through both a newspaper and a website at TAPIntoTheBReeze.net."
She concluded, "The website will never usurp the newspaper, or vice versa, but instead the publications will complement each other to provide the most comprehensive coverage of Bridgewater and Raritan possible. But of course the website is a new opportunity to get the residents involved in the coverage of the town, posting events, sharing thoughts through columns and so much more."
