AOL announced the launch of Digital City a new, magazine-style site that enables readers to stay on top of the latest entertainment trends and stories from around the world. Digital City takes a new approach to geo-blogging by showcasing original content with a local slant, but global appeal.
In addition to daily posts on topics ranging from the arts to fall festivities, Digital City has weekly features focusing on news and trends in entertainment, concerts, nightlife and dining. The monthly blogazine “Drink World” is devoted to the global culture of drinking.
“We’re excited to launch Digital City and to continue our legacy of providing consumers with compelling local entertainment information,” said Chris Spanos, General Manager of AOL Local. “From the serious to the irreverent, Digital City is sure to inform and entertain readers.”
Digital City is part of the AOL Local Network, which is the largest online local network with a monthly reach of 60 million unduplicated unique visitors.* The site will be monetized through advertising packages that will be sold exclusively through Platform-A, AOL’s digital advertising business.
