You read more than one newspaper every morning. You check the AP wire every afternoon. Your magazines sit in a high, teetering stack.

Still, your animal is hungry.

Introducing, a Connecticut news site that understands the usual media offerings just aren’t enough. Updated daily, features original reporting on the state’s political, legal, and business universe, including a healthy focus on our struggling health care system.

Not mere observation. No half-cocked rants. And no regurgitated drivel already recorded in a million other outlets.

We’re talking about professionally gathered news you can’t find anywhere else. Whether it’s the latest dirt on a grandstanding senator or a tasty morsel about which bar owner can’t pay his legal bills—give us a week. We’ll be part of your habit.

Because you need it. Bad.

About the founding editor:

Dan Levine brings years of experience covering Connecticut news to In addition to his daily reporting and editing duties for the site, he writes a weekly state politics column for the Connecticut Law Tribune and covers Hartford courts for Courthouse News Service. Focusing on politics, he reported on a variety of news topics for the Hartford Advocate from 1999 through 2004. Levine broke into journalism as a Village Voice intern and worked a short stint at the Lakeville Journal in Northwest Connecticut before coming to Hartford. He grew up on the North Side of Chicago.

About the current editor:

Christine Stuart comes to the site after nearly four years as a reporter at The Journal Inquirer in Manchester. At the JI, Stuart covered a variety of beats including East Hartford, the state’s scandal-ridden trash authority and a regional water commission, as well as other towns, police news, and politics. Prior to that, she covered education and transportation issues at the state Capitol for the Hartford Advocate. She grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. “Christine is one of the hardest working reporters I know,” founding editor Dan Levine said.
