Walter Bird, Jr. of Worcester Mag reports yesterday about the closing of the Massachusetts sites owned by "The Daily Voice".  

The 11 Massachusetts online news sites owned by The Daily Voice was "a satellite operation" that needed to be shut down so the company could "right the ship" for its flagship papers in Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, Conn., according to Board of Directors Chairman Carll Tucker.

The founder of Main Street Connect, which became The Daily Voice in 2010, did not comment at length when contacted by phone Tuesday, one day after word leaked out that all Massachusetts Daily Voice sites were being closed down permanently. All Massachusetts staff members were laid off Monday and, according to a source at one of the sites, given two-day severances. The only other reference Tucker made to the closing was to say that none of the New York and Connecticut sites were being shut down.

P.S. I know that Westborough.com has been a bit dormant since DailyWestborough ==> DailyVoice and Patch came into town.  Perhaps that may change!  We're still here, and we're LOCALLY OWNED :)
