Dear Readers,

Last week Steve Edwards of Koya Partners and, formerly, WBEZ, and Sheila Solomon of City Bureau, Journalism Funding Partners and our own GCM Board of Directors, led a conversation with some of our local community supporters on the topic of Nonprofit Local News: The Way of the Future.

Our supporters were interested in how to spread the word about the importance of providing financial support to local journalism.  Steve and Sheila made the case so well we wanted to share it with all of you.  Please take a moment to listen and then click to donate to help Austin Weekly News maintain the quality of our communities.
