The new Blueshirt Bulletin website is a mere five days away from launch and today, we have solidified the newest feature we are excited to bring to our readership: a message board.
Blueshirt Bulletin is fortunate to have terrific contributions from it's readers in the comment section. Now, Ranger Nation will provide Blueshirt Bulletin readers with an avenue for consistent discussion and debate on all topics regarding the New York Rangers.
Ranger Nation founder Jonathan Ragus said, "Blueshirt Bulletin has been the standard for New York Rangers coverage for a long time. They combine a fan friendly approach to professional coverage. We are excited to work with them and their readers into Ranger Nation."
"Ranger Nation has always presented itself as a user-friendly website and, unlike many other websites, they have worked to bring a professional aspect to their presentation," said Daniel Akeson of Blueshirt Bulletin. "They are known for their live chats featuring Ranger personalities including professional writers, as well as their exclusive interviews."
With the website re-design, Blueshirt Bulletin will have an exclusive link to the Ranger Nation message board. Readers can sign up with a personalized login and begin accessing discussion topics and specialized content immediately.
As the season progresses, both sides will continue to pursue additional avenues for fan interaction.
"This is hopefully just the beginning of our relationship with Ranger Nation. We will look to take advantage of the fan generated content throughout the season," said Akeson. "As Blueshirt Bulletin looks to reach the next generation of readers, we will need to continue and address all avenues of digital media while still continuing to provide the outstanding independent print coverage that our readers have come to expect."
