We are in the process of forming a non profit media company offering fair and accurate local journalism that aims to inform, not influence.
When we are all watching and engaged in our community, our needs are addressed, democracy works better, and our community is stronger.
We value integrity, transparency, public trust, and quality over quantity. We aim for truth and balance, not virality or online clicks.
Mark is the head of all media properties. He has more than three decades' experience in both digital and print news as a journalist and project manager. He serves as President of the corporation.
Andrea is a former newspaper reporter and editor with more than 20 years' experience in creative services at a major financial services firm. She serves as Secretary and Treasurer of the corporation.
As a public benefit corporation, we will be held accountable by the public. All decisions, including story ideas, advertisers we accept, and areas we cover, will involve communities we cover.
Our first community news project was launched in 2019 as The Palm Springs Blog. In early 2021, we relaunched as a daily newsletter, delivered free to subscribers each weekday morning. In November 2021 we launched a 24/7 online news site, complete with a daily newsletter.
Palm Springs Profiles is our monthly feature of neighbors you should know -- the people who make Palm Springs like no place else.
