A New Business Model For News
The Rocky Mountain Independent is launching a reporter owned online news venture, with member support and advertising, in Denver, Colorado. It is a second attempt to create a successor online news provider to the Rocky Mountain News by former employees there (the Rocky Mountain News archives were transferred to the Denver Public Library and Colorado State Archives), with the previous attempt using an investor owned corporation model. I wish them, and their business model, great success.
