ABOUT LINCOLN ANDERSON: Since 1998 when Lincoln joined The Villager he has honorably upheld a 75-plus-year tradition for “going deep” in covering the best neighborhood in the world, the Village and the whole Downtown area. He brings a well-honed talent for uncovering local stories that must be told and a reputation for delivering news fairly and thoroughly. In 2010 he helped extend The Villager’s unique brand of journalism across town with the launch of The East Villager & Lower East Sider.
The neighborhoods of the West Village and East Village are well served by someone of Lincoln’s caliber being so committed to community journalism. Over the years he has developed a readership that consistently demonstrates trust and respect for his work. Lincoln is famous for his illuminating, quirky headlines, his attention-grabbing ledes, outstanding only-in-The-Villager quotes, granular details and often pioneering story angles.
Laid off from The Villager this fall , its former editor-in-chief is striking back with a new online publication. Lincoln Anderson, who many considered to have “built the brand” of the local paper, rebounds this week with The Village Sun. The first slate of stories posted to the community news platform yesterday, echoing the style and beat of The Villager when he edited it. Anderson tells us that he was “abruptly fired” back in September, and that the move was part of reorganization by parent Schneps Media after the acquisition of amNY last month. ►more
