Case Studies

Mark Poepsel, a University of Missouri School of Journalism PhD candidate, and I have been sussing out financially successful Webcentric news organizations. We’ve identified an array of organizations, and have interviewed several of their principles to find out how they became successful, how they maintain their success, and how they intend to grow, or at least stay stable in these uncertain economic times.

We’ll be adding them over the next few weeks. We’ll put an index here, and publish them in separate pages under this section of the blog.
