News Rewired : Business Models in Community News

Here is a round table discussion from the recent News Rewired Conference discussing the thorny issue of successful business models for Community Journalism.


A community-based local online newspaper was launched last week by three unemployed graduates.

There is a really interesting story here from the Newry News in Ireland about how three unemplyed graduates have set up a new hyperlocal website.

As the article says “the team have made a strong start this week with over 10,000 pageviews and a range of stories with local angles covering” which is fantastic.  As someone how teaches entrepremnurial Journalism to under gradutes in eth UK I will be keen to see how this new business develops.
