Journalism with impact

I want to receive independent, investigative local news every day.

BURNSVILLE — Please join the award-winning staff of Carolina Public Press for a meetup in Yancey County — the next in The News Exchange series — to discuss in-depth and investigative news across Western North Carolina — especially the people, places and issues going overlooked and under-reported.

Truth delivered daily

We want to talk about journalism and the news in Yancey County and your specific community. What needs an investigative reporter to ask more questions? What’s the future of independent media and high-quality news and what does that mean for our communities?

And what can Carolina Public Press offer you — where you live, study, work, volunteer, worship and participate?
