A longtime local sports website has undergone a facelift and taken a new name. Its editor hopes this new incarnation will hearken back to the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, when local sports coverage was in its heyday.

Lebanonsportsbuzz.com relaunchef last Friday as lebcosports.com.

Editor Jeff Falk says his goal is to fill the void that has grown on the local sports beat:

Kicking off lebcosports.com in time to cover the big Lebanon County Basketball Tip-Off Tournament was deliberate because basketball is such an important season, locally.

Going forward, Falk hopes to develop a string of correspondents, similar to the way in which lebtown.com has grown its reporter pool. He says it may even give some local kids their first big break in journalism:

Falk calls himself a “hands-on” editor and plans to delve into sports coverage utilizing both words and photos to tell the local sports stories.
