City & State Buffalo Bureau Launch
City & State, the only all New York government and politics media business, is opening a bureau in Buffalo. The company was born from a merger between The Capitol and City Hall newspapers in 2012 and has mostly focused Albany and Downstate until now. Jim Heany of Investigative Post wrote an article in City & State back in June about inequality in Buffalo.
With the new office Buffalo will have its own correspondent for City & State, Chris Thompson, who has reported for several nationally recognized media outlets. This will increase Buffalo’s presence on the New York State stage and provide an additional source of insight into Buffalo politics. To celebrate the opening City & State is throwing a launch party on Tuesday, September 23rd featuring interviews with Buffalo influencers at Dinosaur BBQ entirely for free so long as you RSVP.
