Welcome to The Indy family
Las Vegas, NV
Text version for screen readers:
I’m Jon Ralston, CEO of The Nevada Independent. I’m writing to introduce myself, thank you for subscribing to our newsletter and give you a little information on what our statewide, nonprofit news organization is all about.
I founded The Indy in 2017 in order to offer Nevadans a nonpartisan, independent news source that goes in-depth on government, policy and politics. We cover education, business, health care, immigration and much more. We also hold dialogue-driven events in order to shed light on key issues and elevate the public conversation.
Since we started our adventure in nonprofit news, the traditional business model for journalism — print publications funded primarily by print advertising — has continued to erode. Meanwhile, the need for quality journalism has never been greater. It’s been gratifying, then, when we have won awards for our work.
I am happy to say that our staff has grown from the original eight to 21 full-time people (plus a number of talented interns, freelancers and contributors).
We would like to continue to grow — and need reader support to do so. As you keep reading and see the value of The Nevada Independent, I hope you consider joining other readers in making a tax-deductible donation.
As part of our commitment to transparency, we disclose all our members and donors.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reply to this email.
