A reader alerts us to a tweet from the twit, Peter Tesei regarding power restoration, and supposedly printed in the Greenwich Time. I can’t find it, just as I can’t find almost anything directly concerning Greenwich. The paper’s article on power resumption reports on conditions in Milford, its “Live Blog storm coverage” is from Danbury, a warning about sewage contaminating water supplies is about Bridgeport, and so on. Our hometown paper is about as hometown as WGCH, which broadcast a Patriots football game during Sandy’s approach on Sunday.
You can’t fault the radio station for abandoning Greenwich: there’s simply no viable business plan for an operation that’s listened to only during snowstorms and hurricanes, but I’m told that some people still buy Greenwich Time and look for it as a source of local news. The paper might have at least kept a couple interns on staff – they cost nothing and yet could help maintain the illusion that “Greenwich Time” is still about Greenwich.
(Here’s the paper’s article on “Greenwich” gasoline shortages)
