“It’s always a great day when our journalism gets accepted and distributed through Google News,” said Michael White, the editorial director at Greater Long Island Media Group, which publishes GreaterBabylon.

“Especially with the changes at Facebook, which is de-emphasizing news content, this allows us to diversify how we reach our audience and keep people informed about local news and events.”
