I’m a young Hispanic woman that lives and grew up in NYC. I think is important to keep young adults educated and inform on what’s going in our society. I find majority of the newspapers cover broad and similar stories. Due to my busy schedule I find myself not being aware of what’s going on in the world. If I was to have my own newspaper my audience will be young adults from the ages 18 and up and live in New York City. It will be for both gender male and female and every ethnicity. My newspaper will be name “NYC Weekly News” and it can be read online or print. Online version will give readers an option to translate the languages. It will be published weekly every Sunday. It will have 24 pages with varies sections such as sports, pop cultural, opinions, features, local, national, international, business, technology, health, entrainment, jobs, ads, internship and education. My main target is to inform young adults on what’s going on local, national, business, sports and international etc. Pretty much inform my readers on different types of news.

Every newspaper has a section with job listing, apartment listing and opinions. I will provided my audience with job listing, apartment listing and also internship listing.

As for jobs and apartments it will also only list tri-state area locations. The jobs listing will be for young adults such as not a having required degree. Jobs listings are only a job not a career is supposed to help you while you’re in college. The lists of jobs are going to be part time.
