For three years, Pressed reached thousands of Canadians with its popular daily email newsletter and social media community. Loyal readers know Pressed for its witty tone of voice and concise explanation of complex world issues.

With a commitment to expanding the reader experience, Daily Hive recently introduced channel-specific newsletters that deliver customized content to readers directly from the writers and editors creating it.

Since 2008, Daily Hive has been committed to creating compelling, hyperlocal content. We embrace the unique qualities that exist in a city and report on stories that produce genuine conversation among communities.

We’re excited to have Jacqueline on board to help us keep our promise to readers to make important information accessible and easily digestible.
