The myriad and manifest funding challenges facing local news won’t be resolved by the whims of the big global brands or via incremental tweaks to an old advertising model, but with new business models that drive revenue in entirely new ways.

This session is designed for:

  • Publishers looking for newsroom-relevant revenue to bolster or replace old models
  • Anyone interested in new ways to support the work of local news organizations
  • Advocates who want to peel back exclusionary layers of subscriptions and paywalls
