Greylock Citizen/Media Collaborative / 2014

Are you disturbed that our North Berkshire region has abruptly lost its two print news media in mid-January, The Transcript and The Advocate? If so, please come to a public forum to discuss what our Berkshire community might do about it.

JOIN US FOR A FREE, PUBLIC:

Dialogue on the Information Needs of the North Berkshire Community

The Williams Inn, Williamstown (new location)
Wed., Feb. 5, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

A public, circle-round discussion, followed by light refreshments. (Discussions may continue after 8 p.m. at the Williams Inn tavern.)

Who's participated?

  • Find out who attended HERE.


SOME QUESTIONS WE'LL CONSIDER:

  • Does our local Berkshires community need an independent, local news and opinion media source, whether print media, online, or both? Can The Berkshire Eagle or iBerkshires -- or Facebook -- meet that need?
  • If we do need such a source, what options exist for forming one? Suggestions:
    • A non-profit organization
    • Co-operative ownership (like a food co-op)?
    • A locally owned for-profit initiative or partnership (like iBerkshires or Hill Country Observer?
    • Print, online, or both?
  • How would such an enterprise be funded? Advertising? Subscriptions? Donations?
  • Who would the target audiences be?

Contacts:

  • Tela Zasloff, jzasloff@adelphia.net
  • Harry Montgomery, harry_montgomery@hotmail.com
  • Bill Densmore, facilitator, wpdensmore@gmail.com
