It was a busy week in the FingerLakes1.com Newsroom, as we covered local reaction to the violent clashes in Washington, D.C., as well as the daily news that everyone expects in the region.
Our weekend newsletters – aimed at keeping you up-to-date in the region- and from the nation’s capitol went out for the first time together.
The Capitol Connection Newsletter, led by National News Editor Gabriel Pietrorazio, who is stationed in the D.C.-area while in graduate school, received high-marks from subscribers. It launched during a pivotal week, as the nation reeled ahead of inauguration.
The Sunday Insight Newsletter, which is led by News Director Josh Durso, looked at the biggest stories and interviews from the week in the Finger Lakes and Upstate New York.

Why do we do it? To give busy readers a way to keep up with everything they need to know, and anything they might have missed during the week prior. “Between the pandemic, unrest around certifying the presidential election results, and still-needed daily coverage – creating newsletter products were 100% necessary,” Durso said. “I’m thrilled that Gabe is leading our coverage and effort from D.C. in this important moment. Our newsletter products will continue to improve as time goes on.”
The two curated weekend editions serve as compliment to FingerLakes1.com’s weekday headline newsletters. “That’s when readers have more time to sit down and sift through what’s happened in their community,” Durso added. “Our aim is to give them the most-complete overview of what’s happening as possible.”
