For many years, newspapers have dominated the mediated news space for most Americans. However, as people move to digital news, the business model that has worked for decades has become less effective. Many media researchers have called for new models that could be the salvation of the news business. This project is a case study of two local media entrepreneurs, one in a very rural location and one in the most urban area of the United States, and how they looked beyond the barriers that were presented to them to create successful media organizations. These cases build on existing media management and innovation theory and provide an example for other budding entrepreneurs to follow.
