Conditions are growing worse in the corporate news landscape. Cutbacks in journalism jobs including the shutdown of traditional publications and the de-staffing of AOL’s Patch chain have left news deserts, places where citizens are thirsty for a local, sustainable journalism. Can you imagine a democracy without good journalism?
That is where you come in. As someone who understands the value of journalism, you can see there is a need for the oc115to fill. We are the grassroots answer to the corporate news desert.
But we can’t do it alone. The oc115 needs readers who are able to pledge a monthly “seed of support” to keep our community news site thriving in the news desert environment.
Sign up for a monthly subscription at https://oaklandcounty115.com/reader-support/, and get your own custom “seed of support” ad. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, and we’re grateful for however long you can be part of the oc115.
(Business sponsorships are available too, with additional perks, at https://oaklandcounty115.com/sponsorshipadvertising/.)
Also, think of who else you know that would support local media, and forward this on to them! Our goal is to get 115 seeds of support so that the oc115 can flourish, hire more writers, and continue changing the landscape of local news.
If you prefer to pay by check, mail to “Ferndale 115, PO Box 20293, Ferndale, MI 48220” One-time payments can be made through the Pay Pal to the right.
Thanks for your support,
