Bxnews.net provides breaking news as well as links to other sites and publications regarding the borough. Upon its launching founder and editor Dan Gesslein wanted to use the site’s unlimited potential to showcase local unsigned talent including, rappers, singers, dancers and artists, the goal being to find the next JLo. Bxnews.net posts news from the 3 newspapers that make up the Bronx group of Hagedorn Communications publications.

*Parkchester News is the only newspaper delivered to all the residents within the development. The paper received praise for its critical reporting on the multi-million dollar renovation of the 70-year-old complex.
*City News is the only independent newspaper delivered to all the residents of Co-op City. In addition to the Bronx newspapers, Hagedorn Communications also publishes Real Estate Weekly, Brokers Weekly, El Vocero/US and Town & Village.
