Register Now for the Wednesday, March 29 Chamber Breakfast!
New Date for March ONLY
Special guests Jim Gatens and Jen Gralish from the Reporter Newspaper Group will conduct an informal public forum:
The value of local news . . . What’s next for Newcastle?
With the loss of the Newcastle News and her sister papers many business owners have mentioned how sad it is that “no one” is reporting on Newcastle.
Jim Gatens & Jen Gralish from the Reporter Newspaper Group/Sound Publishing will discuss how local news strengthens the community, benefits local business and adds to the overall success of the community. What does it take to produce local news? Why do it? How does supporting local news benefit your business? What marketing options are available? What are the challenges for local journalism in the 21st century?
Jim and Jen look forward to receiving feedback from our community and discussing your ideas!
