In case you missed it last week, AAN Executive Director Tiffany Shackelford talked with the Journalism Accelerator about the future of alt-weeklies
I'm thrilled for the future of alt-weeklies — the return to all things local is really exciting for us–and a trend I think we will be able to take advantage of in ways no other media organizations can. And, we have a lot of partnerships with amazing technical companies and tools that we will be rolling out this year. Finally, the progressive and entrepreneurial spirit that helped create alt-weeklies is now transforming the way we think about the future–we are actively finding creative and interesting ways to share content, and expand our brands — all while speaking truth to power and telling stories that no one else will. Look out!
