MedPage Today Pledges to Maintain and Expand News Coverage in 2009
Date:4/7/2009

LITTLE FALLS, N.J., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- MedPage Today, the only breaking medical news site geared for the practicing physician, has taken on the challenge posed by the downsizing of newspapers and other old-line news outlets by pledging to expand its coverage.

"MedPage Today is not only standing firm, but is investigating ways to expand our coverage," said Robert Stern, founder and C.E.O. of MedPage Today.

The full pledge is detailed in "An Open Letter to the MedPage Today Community" posted on the MedPage Today homepage.

Issued amidst a steady stream of announced cutbacks and closings among traditional media, MedPage Today's pledge typifies "our team's approach to covering the news that matters in medicine," said Stern.

He noted that MedPage Today has stepped up its coverage in a number of key areas over the past year and will continue its expansion in 2009.

"For example, we are the only online medical news service with a fully-credentialed Congressional reporter, which gives us an inside track during what many expect to be this year's defining issue in Congress -- the debate over healthcare reform," he said.

The MedPage Today Washington presence also means fast and accurate coverage of the FDA, NIH, and CMS.

But Washington is only one aspect of the MedPage Today news coverage.

"At MedPage Today, we will continue to fully staff our news gathering operation, providing breaking news, special reports, and coverage of more than 50 medical/scientific research meetings worldwide," wrote Stern and the MedPage Today editors. "We will also continue our expansion into the blogosphere, social networking sites, and multimedia."

Finally, Stern and the editors guaranteed, "The one change you will not see at MedPage Today is less news."
