Insider Louisville to cease publishing
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Louisville nonprofit news organization Insider Louisville announced it’s ending publication.
According to a statement posted Monday, publication will cease on Aug. 7.
The statement read in part:
"Insider couldn’t have done any of it without loyal readers who pushed, prodded, provided tips and kept the organization honest.
Insider responded to a need in the community for informative, long-form investigative news – without a paywall. Hopefully, #loumedia will keep local and state officials honest and continue to push for much-needed transparency. It is no longer hyperbole to say that Democracy hangs in the balance. Louisville will have a much better future because of such dogged reporting."
