TAPinto.net CEO and Publisher Michael Shapiro appeared on “One on One” with Steve Adubato Thursday night and answered questions about the role of hyperlocal online news media.

The interview was broadcast on WNYY, NJTV and WNET. Adubato closed by saying that “Michael Shapiro, he is on the cutting edge of media.“

Shapiro answered a wide-range of questions about TAPinto.net and its 5.5 million readers and revealed some interesting statistical trends about online, local news.

“I think there is the greatest demand for local news coverage,” Shapiro said. “We see that in our statistics. Sixty-seven percent of our readers come from mobile devices, so print newspaper can’t service those people.

“The other interesting thing is that more and more older Americans are reading their news online. In terms of our demographics of our own site a great majority of our readers are 45 and older. In fact, 20 percent of our readers are 65 and older. This notion that older people don’t read online isn’t true.”

My Heart and I Are Movin’ Along!

After enjoying freedom for a couple of weeks—no doctors’ appointments and tests—it was time to meet with the pulmonary hypertension specialist.

Life in the Arctic

A couple of weeks ago, spring was in the air. It was growing from the ground, it was singing from the pond next door. The crocuses were blooming and the frogs were squawking their furious mating calls.

A week later, the crocuses had croaked and the croakers, probably the same. Their betrothed, who were ribbited a week earlier, were now croaking, “Dude, what the hell?” The arrival ...

How Important Are SAT/ACT Exams?

Dear Dr. Linda,

My wife is having our son take the SAT and the ACT over and over again. Each time it costs money and even more money for the tutor. I’m an attorney and never took this many exams in my life. Our son is miserable, my wife is determined and I’m angry. I guess you have a clear picture of our home environment at this time. It’s not pretty. Any ...

Festival Celebrates Women Playwrights

Glass Ceiling: “A metaphor used to represent an invisible barrier that keeps a given demographic (typically applied to women) from rising beyond a certain level.”

In what is believed to be a first for Westchester theater, a one-act festival will celebrate women playwrights.

“Glass Ceiling Breakers,” the umbrella title for the all-female festival, offers a pungent mix ...

Attention All Catalog Shoppers

Back in my early days of suburbia, I received one or two catalogs in the mail, and that was about it. However, catalogs, I soon learned, are like rabbits, and tend to multiply if left unattended. At first I looked forward to the occasional Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma catalogs. Not that I was buying, because we were young and house poor. But like a man with a girly magazine, I liked to look ...
