St. Louis Journalists Start Web-Only News Organization


Kansas City, MO – Journalists in a few cities around the country are banding together to form web-only news organizations. Many of them are non-profit, supported primarily by foundation grants, and often staffed by reporters laid off from the big city dailies. One of these experiments in news media began publishing online about a year ago in St. Louis. KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross spoke to one of the founders of the St. Louis Beacon, editor Margaret Frievogel, who is a veteran of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
