Originating from a home office in 2008, AlaskaDispatch is the growing new voice for local news and reporting. As a strong advocate for citizen journalism, AlaskaDispatch required a digital platform to speak to Alaska's diverse populace. The online newspaper was quickly outgrowing the features and capacity of its old CMS. Realizing the OpenPublish Drupal distribution would offer more robust features targeted to online publishing, AlaskaDispatch turned to Mediacurrent for OpenPublish expertise.
OpenPublish's tightly integrated publishing features helped Mediacurrent and the newspaper's development team rapidly configure and launch the site in a short time frame. Coupled with Acquia's enterprise hosting platform and rigorous performance testing, AlaskaDispatch is readily serving 1M+ page views per month from the last frontier.
