Qcitymetro.com, a website offering news and information specific to Charlotte’s African American community, has joined an online partnership with The Charlotte Observer and four other local websites. The project is funded with a grant from J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism, which promotes the use of digital technologies for delivering news and information. The Observer and its five partners will share content and explore ways to cover stories together.
Qcitymetro is led by CAABJ member Glenn H. Burkins, who serves as editor and publisher since launching the site in December 2008. Click here to read more about the grant and partnership.
