NUTLEY, NJ - TAPinto Nutley surpassed 1,000,000 page views in 2020, the first time that Nutley's hyperlocal media outlet reached that milestone since its launch in 2016.
The online news outlet serves the greater community of Nutley, focusing on redevelopment, politics and elections, community business, education, police and fire reports, and public organizations in an objective, daily news format that reaches an average of 40,000 unique readers monthly online. The TAPinto Nutley Community Calendar has become THE go-to place to find civic and cultural events, as well as township meetings, all in one place.
"The role of local media has been crucial this year during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to have presented important, accurate information to people when they needed it most,' said Publisher John Lee. "When I realized, on New Year's Day, that we had over 1.6 million page views in year in which so many things were canceled, I cannot even begin to imagine how well we'll do in the future, but Nutley being Nutley, there is always an opportunity if you seek it and ignore the naysayers."
Over the past year, TAPinto Nutley had "boots on the ground" to cover stories like two fatal house fires, the Black Lives Matter rally in Yanticaw Park, the Back the Blue march in Nutley Center, and just before everything came to a standstill, the 2020 Nutley Irish American Association St. Patrick's Day parade. TAPinto Nutley has also attended every Township of Nutley Board of Commissioners meeting and Nutley Board of Education meeting.
This past year, and into 2021, stories related to COVID-19 have filled our pages. As we mourn those residents lost in the pandemic, our team of reporters is also covering the news related to the vaccines and the challenges to control the spread of coronavirus. Of course Nutley being Nutley, there is always something new happening in town, and we were there to welcome several new businesses to the township.
During the last year, TAPinto Nutley has also seen its advertising base grow with the addition of Clara Maass Medical Center, The Oakley, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, Juzdan Gear, Hackensack Meridian Mountainside Medical Center, Franklin Farms, ProShred Security and more.
