LISTEN: Rethinking the business of local news

 In a recent episode of the Charlotte Talks With Mike Collins podcast, experts sat down to discuss the state of local news in North Carolina and nationwide.

Featuring UNC-Knight Intiatitve Table Stakes alumni members Glenn Burkins of QCity Metro (cohort four) and Angie Newsome of Carolina Public Press (cohort two), the podcast highlights how the news industry potentially played a significant role in its own gradual decline, what impact digitalization has had on news accessibility and why diversification of revenue streams is integral to sustainability. WFAE participated in the first cohort of the UNC Table Stakes program.

Launched in April 1998, Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins discusses politics, growth, the arts, culture, social issues, literature, human interest, the environment and more.
