Founded in 2011, Carolina Public Press is a nonprofit online news service providing Western North Carolina with unbiased, in-depth and investigative reporting and educational opportunities. Revenue: grants, donations.

Introduction by publisher

Carolina Public Press started in 2011 as a fiscally sponsored project of another news organization. It started as one solution to the reduction in in-depth, investigative and public policy reporting in the mainly rural Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. It shares its content with other top news print, radio and TV news organizations across the region and state. Currently, it has a staff of three (two full-time and one part-time) and a group of about 10 freelance reporters, photographers and data visualization journalists. It received its independent not-for-profit status in 2014.
