Introduction by publisher

Like many, The Manomet Current was created when its founder was laid-off by the local branch of Gatehouse Media.
The Current is aggressively local. Our rule of coverage is that any story must either take place in our coverage area or involve a person from it.
We've managed to become a relied upon source of information for our community, though we still have a ways to go against our very well-established competition.

Business challenge

I'm bad at it.
