Florida Duo Launch Statehouse Mobile Alerts

Florida residents can receive the latest local politics news on their mobiles thanks to a collaboration project between two titles.

The St Petersburg Times and the Miami Herald are the two newspapers behind the initiative to provide mobile alerts from their joint bureau at the statehouse, reports Editor & Publisher.

Subscribers receive breaking news under general categories such as Top News, and specific ones including Legislature and Governor.

“We think The Scoop on Florida Politics will give followers of politics the best news and information possible, and faster than ever before,” said Anders Gyllenhaal , executive editor for the Miami Herald.

“In the mobile culture of Tallahassee during the Legislative session, it will be one more way people can rely on the Miami Herald-St.Pete Times bureau to provide the news they need at this critical time.”
