Media & MARKETING Counsel



The newspaper industry is not dead.  In fact, the citizens of a small but prosperoustown just outside of Austin, Texas proved that in 2013 with their grassroots effort to return a local newspaper to their hometown. They'd been without one for nearly two years.  After a pre-paid subscription drive involving the whole community succeeded grandly, we began publishing The Northshore Star, the fourth newspaper in our small group.  It was the only start-up in Texas that year. But every issue was profitable during our ownerhship!
We provide consulting and other services -- including interim management -- for established publishers and others interested in start-up publications of any kind.

Within two years, our papers had reversed a downward trend and become unquestionably dominant in advertising, circulation, news coverage and internet traffic.
