— For anyone who has ever been to the Bahamas, you probably know the island’s reputation as a place where people spend all day reading the papers of the week.
But what if the island doesn’t have that?
That’s where a new startup called Longview News Journal comes in.
The company says it’s the first to offer a full-fledged time-travel experience that can help readers read the news in a more timely fashion.
LongviewNewsJournal.com, the company’s Web site and mobile app, offers a curated news feed that highlights news stories from the past week, highlighting the latest news stories and stories from around the world.
It also includes articles that highlight the latest developments in the news and events that have impacted the community.
The service offers two-week and five-year subscriptions.
LongVIEW News Journal also offers free access to the news site to its users, and it says its users are more likely to read news stories about the company, its employees and its businesses, such as Longview-based company The Daily Herald.
“Our goal is to create a digital, mobile experience that will enable readers to access the news that matters to them in a way that makes sense for their digital lives,” said Longview news editor John Burchfield in a press release.
“With the news, we will provide a fresh, timely perspective on the world, and we’ll keep you up to date on all the latest happenings.”
The company is currently testing the news app and its mobile app.
It says its service has a 30-day free trial, and plans to expand its subscription to 10 days in the coming months.
For now, users can sign up for a free trial and get access to all of its news feeds at no extra cost.
Longviews News Journal is currently accepting payments through its website, but Burchfeild said it will begin accepting payments in the future.
LongView News Journal was founded in 2016 by former employees of Time Inc. CEO Bill Bader, who has also served as CEO of the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times.
He also founded the Boston Globe and Washington Post.
