DCistNOW to Become TheDistrictNOW.com Following Cease-and-Desist Letter Related to Now-Defunct DCist

by | Nov 14, 2017

DCistNOW.com proprietor Aaron Myers says he will change the name of his new website after receiving a cease-and-desist letter from counsel for NewMediaNews, LLC, which used to operate DNAinfo and Gothamist websites, including DCist. According to Washingtonian, “Myers’s site will be known as TheDistrictNOW.com.

“Myers, a local jazz musician, felt moved to create DCistNOW.com upon learning that the billionaire owner of NewMediaNews, Joe Ricketts, had suddenly closed DCist at the beginning of November. Washingtonian contacted a spokesperson for Ricketts to inquire whether he might have any issue with the name Myers had chosen for his new site, but did not receive a reply.

“Myers’ stance has since shifted. “I can’t afford to tango with a Billionaire, but I’m not going to let that stop me from building a platform DC Residents can utilize as a place of consistent news & information,” he tells Washingtonian in an email.”
