Terry Kroeger: We're in this together, thick and thin. We invite you to #JoinOurStory
This column by Publisher and CEO Terry Kroeger was published May 5 in the Omaha World-Herald
I want to tell you a story. Don't worry. I'll keep it short.
This story is about you and us and how we're in it together, thick and thin. It's the story about our local newspaper and our community. We have been here for you in some form since 1865 – even before Nebraska was a state.
It's a story that at its most basic level is one of freedom. The stories we tell keep us all free by holding leaders accountable, by informing our community about what matters, and recording Omaha's history. Our stories also entertain, enlighten and inspire, forming the fabric of our community.
We can tell this story best because our storytellers – our employees – are part of the community, too. We are your friends and neighbors.
