Kicking off high school sports in York County with a Vroom

There is so much to catch up with in regard to NewsVroom’s debut Friday night at the West York vs. Central York football game. Let’s start with some links about the launch.

In this short video, YDR.com Managing Editor Randy Parker explains what NewsVroom is all about.

Here, Parker talks with GameTimePa sportswriters about how they use new media to better serve the high school sports fans and players in York County.

YDR.com also captured social media chatter in and around Central’s football field in this article.


Steve Buttry, Director of Community Engagement & Social Media for Digital First Media, was on hand for the debut and blogged about the experience. We also got some national attention from Digital First Media in this news release about NewsVroom.

NewsVroom already has a big set of Friends and Followers on Facebook and Twitter, and that is sure to grow as we meet with hundreds of people in the coming weeks.

Look for NewsVroom Sunday when Vice President Biden visits West York. And of course, stop by NewsVroom at the York Fair. We’ll be in Memorial Hall and look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you might have.
