McClatchy to launch digital news outlet to serve Youngstown, Ohio 8/6/19

McClatchy has selected Youngstown, Ohio, as the launch city for The Compass Experiment – an initiative in association with Google to develop essential and sustainable local digital news models.

"When we heard that Youngstown's daily newspaper, The Vindicator, would be closing, we saw an opportunity to help a community with a rich heritage and distinct identity find a path forward for local news," said Mandy Jenkins, general manager of The Compass Experiment. "We are on the ground now working with people in the community to set up a digital news outlet that will launch in the fall."
