Press Release: Cider Mag Preparing To Launch New and Improved Music Web Site

BELLOWS FALLS, VT. – Since the announcement in mid-November that staff writer/music journalist Joe Milliken was taking over the Cider Mag reins as Managing Partner and Editor-in-Chief, Joe has been hard at work re-vamping all aspects of the Vermont/New Hampshire music and entertainment Web site with a plan to re-launch in early February.

“We’ve got a lot of exciting expansions planned for Cider in 2014 including a brand new site design, several new music and entertainment-related columns for our readers and a diverse mix of writers – including a few current "how to write a film critique" contributors and some new writers as well,” Milliken said. “Along with our expansive local music coverage, we are also going to broaden our editorial scope a bit to include more Arts, theatre and food related articles and for our advertisers, we will also be introducing new, less expensive ad rates.

As the new Web site gains traction, Cider also plans to offer promotional materials to accompany and compliment their site, which will be distributed into Cider's target market areas including music venues, clubs and bars, restaurants and other select retail outlets.

“We are going to start by printing and distributing our popular and growing local music event calendar, then move up to an 8-page “mini” Cider Magazine which will feature a full cover story, other articles and our event calendar," Milliken added. "From there and as the demand allows, the magazine will get larger and more in-depth, going hand-in-hand with our improved Web site.”

Cider is a music and entertainment Web site and Facebook page dedicated to reporting, supporting and promoting all genres of the local music and entertainment scene throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond.
