Just got an email announcing that MinnPost, the online-only news site, will launch tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. You can get the details at the site.
If you’re not familiar with the effort, the site is essentially a collection of former print journalists who want to run a statewide online-only news service that will be based on a public broadcasting model. Revenue is expected to come from pledges and big-pocket donors.
It will be interesting to see how it fares; especially as newspaper circulation continues to decline. I wish them luck.
You should check out their Journalists page. It’s certainly an impressive collection of talent but OMG, could they be any whiter or Boomerer?!?
