If you were one of the many people that responded to our post recently “Is Morgantown Ready for a Weelunk Style News Site?” – then get ready to take the next step.
At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 26 at the Evansdale Black Bear there’ll be an open public meeting for anyone and everyone interested in finding out more about starting a community news and information website in the Weelunk model here in Morgantown.
No need to register, just show up. The purpose of the meeting will be to try and identify a team of folks – writers, salespeople, photographers, marketers, designers etc – to take the idea and run with it.
Who knows, perhaps some existing writers and media outlets in the region might want to join forces to make something new and beautiful? Or perhaps there just isn’t the talent, capacity and business support here in Morgantown to pull off something like this right now?
There’s only one way to find out. Show up.
Evansdale Black Bear. Tuesday. 5:30. We’ll be in the meeting room straight ahead as soon as you walk in the door.
I’ll see you there.
