Shuttered DCist Plans Spring Relaunch

by | Apr 20, 2018

DCist secured two editors to its masthead ahead of its upcoming rebirth, states MediaPost, which added that local news sites Gothamist, LAist and DCist were shut down last fall, but then acquired by local radio affiliates earlier this year. Washington public radio station WAMU acquired DCist in February and has announced that editor-in-chief Rachel Sadon and associate editor Rachel Kurzius are returning to their previous roles. Former staff writer Christina Sturdivant will also regularly contribute to DCist.

““Rest assured, we plan to stick to our promise of a “spring” relaunch — we’ll share the precise date as soon as it’s final,” an email to DCist subscribers reads.

“DCist grew to an audience of more than 700,000 readers before it was shuttered,” stated MediaPost.
