In the last 20 years, the traditional media have been severely disrupted by everything from the internet to Amazon to political polarization. Thriving suburban communities like Cherry Hill, Evesham/Marlton, Medford, Medford Lakes, Mount Laurel and Voorhees used to be closely covered by newsrooms, but no more.
We believe those communities deserve more complete and insightful coverage – giving rise to the digital-only journalism of 70and73.com.
What is 70and73?
If you’ve lived in this area for any length of time, you understand the role these two state highways play in our world. While many of us avoid them and their traffic, they define a special area of suburbia. And what we call 70and73 Land lies within an approximate five-mile radius of the intersection of these highways.
Does a media conglomerate own 70and73.com?
Far from it. We’re owned by Ewald Technology LLC, a New Jersey privately owned small business based in Marlton.
Who is behind 70and73?
The concept has been developed by Neill Borowski, a journalist who spent 21 years living in Cherry Hill when he was a reporter and editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer. He also has been executive editor of The Press of Atlantic City, executive editor of three daily newspapers in Binghamton, Ithaca and Elmira, NY and in senior management roles in newsrooms in Indianapolis and Rochester, NY. He is Owner/CEO of Ewald Technology and now lives in Marlton.

What is the news coverage strategy of 70and73?
You probably won’t read about the latest tractor trailer rollover on Route 295, even if it happens in 70and73 Land. We want to write about only those things we think are relevant to your lives. What you often will see on 70and73 is a local news story with national context and comments from national experts. We always have our eye out for solutions – why write about problems without offering ways to get around those problems? But at the heart of it all is the human story, the tale of people who live around 70and73. We love good storytelling.
What is our political leaning?
We don’t think we have one. That’s not a cop out. We just don’t have time to think about it because we’re busy writing about the news. Because of this, we intentionally do not run editorials or opinion pieces by us. Your opinion pieces and guest columns, however, are welcome and will appear in the Your Articles section. Send your submissions to email@example.com.
How can you help?
We want your ideas and tips. We also want you to subscribe or to advertise your business. News stories – especially ones that go deep – are not easy and consume resources.
