When we spoke last fall with WEHOville.com founder-publisher Henry Scott, he outlined his intention to follow the 2012 website with a companion print publication in 2013. That time has now officially arrived – with a twist.
Scott confirmed this morning that a free weekly print edition of WEHOville is planned for late summer, publishing every Thursday. He estimates that he will need three months to break even and is hoping local news consumers will help fund the expansion to the tune of $35,000 on Kickstarter:
Why print, you ask? Because many people still prefer to get their news that way. So we will reach a bigger audience with both print and online editions. In West Hollywood, with our embarrassingly small voter turnout, we need to engage as many residents as possible in the discussion of important civic issues.
