About Us

GentillyMessenger.com is a local, independent online source of news, commerce and knowledge for the greater Gentilly area, set to launch Spring of 2016.

Every day at GentillyMessenger.com, you’ll find neighborhood-level coverage of government and politics, crime, business and community events. We will tell the stories of Gentilly New Orleans and  surrounding areas through traditional articles and photos, as well as video and live-blogging made possible by the Internet.

GentillyMessenger.com will primarily cover the news for Gentilly, Gentilly Terrace, Ponchartrain Park, Gentilly Woods, Lakefront, and some New Orleans East news.

We are financially supported by our local advertisers and by generous contributions from our readers. Although we are not a “newspaper,” we strictly adhere to the Society of Professional Journalists’ code of ethics.

Editor Megan Braden-Perry is excited to cover the neighborhood where she was raised, attended school and where she still resides. Megan is a Press Club of New Orleans award-winning journalist formerly of Gambit and NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with her son and eating and drinking her way through the greater New Orleans area. Check out Megan’s portfolio on Media Bistro.
