2011 NAHJ Session: Ten Tips Every Successful News Entrepreneur Needs to Know

Professional journalists are increasingly launching news websites in communities across the country. Learn from two Latina journalists who are running their own successful sites.

Are you ready to launch a local news startup? Or do you want to grow an existing site? This session will offer ten tips on how to be a successful news entrepreneur.

J-Lab has seeded dozens of hyperlocal news sites in recent years, mentored those publishers and reported on their achievements. 

Executive director Jan Schaffer will lead a discussion with Lydia Chavez of Mission Local in Oakland, CA., and Ana Acle-Menendez of West Kendall Today outside of Miami. The three will explore what it takes to run a site of your own and offer advice and resources to help you before, during and after launch.
