After helping five pilot news organizations together raise more than $1 million in six months, the News Revenue Hub has spun off into its own standalone organization.

News Revenue Hub, the brainchild of Mary Walter-Brown, first began last fall as an initiative of the nonprofit news site Voice of San Diego, an exemplar of sustainable digital news membership. Led by Walter-Brown (CEO) and Tristan Loper (also previously of Voice of San Diego), the Hub launched at a time when many news organizations were trying to rethink their mission and messaging post-U.S. election. Walter-Brown is now hoping to continue its early successes, adding five new organizations. (Nieman Lab)
