Gabriel Snyder, formerly of The New Republic and The Atlantic, is launching a new daily media newsletter that will cover the media business in New York City.

Why it matters: The media beat has gotten more competitive over the past few years as independent journalists and media companies launched dozens of new newsletters analyzing the business.

The launch product — a daily newsletter called "Off The Record," will chronicle the inside workings of media companies in New York City for a $75 annual subscription fee.

  • It will focus on topics like people moves, company culture and the politics of big and small media institutions.
  • The company will use Wordpress and MailChimp. Snyder says he is hiring a reporter to write the newsletter that he will oversee and edit.

What's next: If the model works, Snyder hopes to expand to other media hubs.
