Xpress sat down with the heads of two local nonprofit news organizations to learn how the business model compares to its for-profit cousin and whether the concept offers a sustainable solution to an industry struggling to hang on.
Carolina Public Press is at it again, continuing to foster a more well-informed region, with its newest initiative. Open WNC, which Executive Director Angie Newsome says she hopes to launch in July, aims to give readers and citizens of Western Carolina easy access to public documents, data and records.
Give all citizens a voice. Give them in-depth information to make informed decisions. To that end, Carolina Public Press has launched The News Exchange, which aims to give the 18 westernmost N.C. counties a chance to voice the issues within their own communities, get questions answered and problems solved.
