Two former colleagues will soon be going head to head in the growing hyperlocal scene on Long Island.
As Long Island Business News first reported on its Web site, Editor David Reich-Hale has quit to take over the Long Island operations of Patch.com, a hyperlocal Web venture owned by AOL.
And Carl Corry, executive producer of News 12 Interactive, has moved over to Newsday, a sister Cablevision operation, as the online editor for local news and products.
Reich-Hale, who has been editor of Long Island Business News for three years, begins at Patch.com on March 8. Corry started on March 1.
Corry and Reich-Hale worked together at LIBN for three years, when Corry was editor and Reich-Hale managing editor.
