A new weekly publication will soon be on the streets of Buffalo and Western New York. Former Artvoice editor Geoff Kelly has put together a core staff of seven writers, designers and sales representatives in creating "The Public."
Kelly has been toying with the idea of entering the local newspaper market since leaving Artvoice last spring. He joined WBFO's Chris Jamele for a conversation about the new venture and how it fits with an emerging optimism about the region.
Kelly says the publication's website DailyPublic.com will be up and running this week.
