Tamani Wooley at Time Warner Cable News reports that the Albany area is getting a new alternative weekly magazine, The Alt, after the demise of Metroland. The Alt is scheduled to launch on November 15 covering arts, culture, politics, news, and lifestyles in Albany, Saratoga Springs, Schenectady, and Troy. "We're an alternative paper. We're filling this void I think we believe exists, not only in entertainment coverage in the area, really in depth entertainment, but also coverage of people, places and areas that are ignored," said editor David King. The Daily Gazette, Overit, and Proctors are behind the new venture, with 25,000 copies given away free weekly at 400 locations. The magazine's website is thealt.com.
