Voice of OC is a nonprofit investigative news site plans to launch at the end of the year.
LAT’s Mike Anton reports:
The Voice of OC, which hopes to begin posting reports by year’s end, is the latest online venture focusing on local reporting and investigative journalism — two areas hard hit in recent years as newspapers have slashed staffing because of losses in ad revenue
Hm. Voice of OC and Voice of San Diego but they’re not affiliated? We looked to Andrew Donohue, editor at Voice of San Diego to clarify.
“There is no formal affiliation. We have independent boards, missions, staffs, etc.,” Donohue told FBLA.
“Norberto is a friend and respected colleague who sought our advice as he went about this process, and we offered him our perspective, as well as the lessons we’ve learned from our biggest failures and successes.
“The voice title I believe is sort of an homage to the model, rather than any indication of franchising or our organization’s individual expansion.”
We like this nonprofit news stuff. Where’s our checkbook…
