Print is not dead: The Rockaway Times


Print is not dead, not in Rockaway.

Kevin Boyle, the former editor of The Wave, has announced the launch of a new weekly newspaper. The Rockaway Times will start to publish on June 26th, with a companion website to be launched as well.

Kevin is widely credited with reviving The Wave after Hurricane Sandy. The storm severely damaged their building, and it took them weeks to resume publication. Since so many of their advertisers were also impacted by the storm, the paper’s future seemed uncertain. In those months, Kevin was a vocal advocate of recovery efforts, and rallied the community to fight burdensome increases in flood insurance premiums.

The Rockaway Times will be operating out of offices on Beach Channel Drive. Stay posted for more details on promising new developments for the community.
