Central Current (centralcurrent.org) is a new online journalism outlet for Syracuse and Central New York, with a mission to fill in the gaps in local news coverage. Editor-in-chief Julie McMahon and reporter Chris Libonati will share their stories about leaving a legacy media organization to launch a startup, nonprofit news website. They will discuss what gaps, including environmental reporting, they perceive as needing coverage in Central New York, and how they plan to build a sustainable business that can support better coverage for this community long-term.
As usual, there will be a generous amount of time for questions, comments and interaction with participants.
