Support LNO –  Support Local Independent Journalism

Will you consider being a member and supporter of local independent journalism?

LNO has grown to reach 25,000+ unique visitors per month and 150,000+ pages read. (LNO) celebrates the 17th year of covering NE Tarrant County news, based in Colleyville.

In order to continue  and expand our coverage, LNO, is offering a membership program to support local Independent Journalism.

Your support also could be by joining a team of volunteering independent journalists  as a news or sports reporter, no experienced needed, just common sense reporting on local events in Colleyville, Grapevine, Southlake, Keller, North Richland Hills, Bedford, Hurst or Euless.  Also a commissioned sales person is needed to expand LNO’s advertising reach.

LNO’s first 3 years were hard copy until both of the monolith local papers, Dallas Morning News and Star-Telegram launched a local hard copy over the years, now all have virtually disappeared and there is not even the pretense of adequate coverage news in our suburban NE Tarrant cities.

The two local monoliths newspaper left standing in our area  have continued to remain amazingly out of step with Tarrant Counties’ history as a conservative political base, now virtually little to no coverage.

In 2017 Independent Online Journalism has erupted from at least 150 separate markets.  The LIONs (Local Independent Online News Sources) recently shared a $455,000 grant to help boost awareness and growth of these Independent Journalists locations.

A lot of the sudden spurt has been the epidemic of out of step and “fake” news by the traditional news sources.

Other start up Independent Journalists have simply decided to fill a news gap in local communities, while traditional newspapers are dying by a thousand paper cuts (staff, coverage, etc.)

We sincerely hope you will join in the support of local independent journalism to continue the coverage and future growth of our local coverage.
