DENVER, November 6, 2009 - GroundFloor Media Communications (www.groundfloormedia.com), a Denver-based public relations agency, has been retained by Examiner.com, the insider source for everything local and the fastest-growing news Web site in the country according to Nielsen Online. GroundFloor Media will work with Examiner.com and its existing communications partners to heighten awareness about the company and position it as the leader in delivering online hyperlocal news and information. 

Launched in April 2008, Examiner.com (www.examiner.com) has grown more than 200 percent since the beginning of this year and now has more than 21,000 Examiners (Examiner.com’s expert writers) in 162 markets across the country, attracting 17 million unique readers each month.
