Welcome To A New Year. Welcome To The Possible Future Of Local Media.

4 Jan , 2022  

By 1808Delaware with content by Anyword

Welcome to 2022!

Here is something brand new for a brand new year. Perhaps for the first time in the history of Delaware County news media (as far as we are aware, that is), you are currently reading a published non-sports story which was partially written by a machine.

Could this be part of the future of local media?

It already is.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere, and it can be used to do just about anything. Nowadays, your phone isn’t even fully usable without some sort of AI like Siri or Google Assistant to help you navigate it. But you may be surprised to learn that AI is also being used by the news media to help with their reporting efforts. So what does this mean for the future of the news media? More…

We’re Expanding Our Footprint A Bit

12 Jun , 2021  

By 1808Delaware

As you access 1808Delaware over the coming weeks, you may notice a few changes.

We love being a part of the Delaware County community. That shared, we are obviously aware that the interconnection between the county and the northern parts of Columbus is remarkably strong. Commuters travel back and forth each day, and Delaware Countians routinely shop in Franklin County and vice versa.

In recognition of that fact, we are going to be expanding our focus a bit to bring in the northern suburbs of Columbus, such as Dublin and Worthington, as well as the I-270 northern corridor.

We’re still focusing our primary attention on Delaware, Powell, Sunbury, Galena, Lewis Center, Ostrander, and Westerville. More…
