In October of 2022 I became the owner and publisher of the Western Wayne News, Wayne County, Indiana’s locally owned, independent newspaper since 1991. It’s distributed weekly in print as well as online. Our reporting and stories about news, events, sports, government meetings, community updates and much more reach tens of thousands of people in the area and beyond.
My role as publisher spans a wide variety of tasks and projects, including editorial planning, reporting, editing, advertising sales, subscriber support, design, website and software development, employee and contractor management, accounting, business strategy, marketing, office management and community outreach.
The paper is one of what I hope will be several local media projects pursued through Civic Spark Media LLC, the parent company I founded to facilitate these efforts.
