Creating a digital-only publishing business is a challenge, to say the least. Like television or radio, you need to staff a newsroom with journalists, provide a wide array of topics, and be on standby around the clock as news breaks.
A Canadian-operated group of news websites, Village Media, operates dozens of websites across Canada, with newsrooms in the U.S. and even Nigeria. They say they’re more than just news: they’re all about community.
At the helm of Village Media is Jeff Elgie, and he’s looking to maximize the evolution of local news.
