Welcome to GoLocalPDX

Saturday, August 30, 2014

 

Welcome to GoLocalPDX, a digital news site committed to news, lifestyle, investigative journalism, food, fashion, arts, health and business content -- everything local.

The genesis of the business came from two guys in New England back in 2009 – Josh Fenton and Paul Krasinski -- who saw a few important things developing:

-    Newspapers were going out of business and those that remained were losing relevancy and readers. 
-    For a lot of cities there was nothing to replace the important enterprise journalism that newspapers did well for decades.  
-    People wanted local news and they wanted to be able to access it on their computers, on their mobile phones and on their tablets.
-    Readers wanted to feel more involved in the news stories they were reading, and to be part of the media conversation.
-    It wasn’t just journalists who had important things to say.
-    Advertisers needed important, smart, fun and informative content to sit alongside. 
-    Finally, and most importantly, journalism plays an important role in democracies, and keeps politicians, non-profits, and businesses honest.  

So Josh and Paul started GoLocal24, which led, five years later, to Oregon. In Portland, they found a group of people who agreed that good journalism and strong engagement with this community was vital for this city and state. GoLocalPDX is the result of their efforts, and the efforts of all the writers and community members who have added their voices to this digital news platform.
