In an era where “layoffs” and “cash-strapped” are the words most often associated with traditional newsrooms, the effort to find ways for journalism to turn a profit — or at least live to fight another day — has given rise to new business models. Enter News Revenue Hub, a promising new nonprofit organization that began last fall under the umbrella of the Voice of San Diego. News Revenue Hub’s basic business model is to provide news organizations with the expertise and technical support to successfully build a paying membership base, something many journalists focused on getting out the news don’t have the time or inclination for (to their eternal financial detriment).
