Philly: A Q&A with MinnPost CEO Joel Kramer

Feb. 28, 2012

While regional, nonprofit, online news organizations around the country look for sustainable business models, Minnesota’s MinnPost seems to have found the golden ratio—or at least one that works for now. For the past two years—drawing revenue from advertising, foundation grants, events, capital campaigns, and memberships—MinnPost has turned a modest profit.
This month, MinnPost Editor and CEO Joel Kramer will be coming to Temple University to talk about his efforts to build a financially viable news organization. Mr. Kramer, a lifelong newsman who launched MinnPost in 2007, will give a short presentation followed by a Q&A session, both of which will be free and open to the public.
The Center for Public Interest Journalism invites you to attend. The event will take place Tuesday, February 28th, at 3 p.m. in Temple’s Shusterman Hall. A limited number of seats are available, so please reserve a ticket here.
