Lindsey Banks has been hired by The Charlotte Ledger, an email newsletter covering business, as a reporter.
Editor in chief Tony Mecia writes, “The Ledger’s approach is to produce smart and high-quality work. We’re showing there’s a market for that kind of reader-focused journalism, free of clickbait, rehashed press releases, sensationalism and barrages of distracting ads that for some reason have become the norm in our industry. Readers tell us we’re filling a void.
Lindsey, like me and Cristina, will be on the hunt for original, smart, Charlotte-focused stories you can not find elsewhere and that tell you interesting and important things about our community. In a small operation like ours, everyone pitches in as needed, but we envision Lindsey building sources among neighborhood leaders and small business owners. She’ll enlighten us about areas of Charlotte that otherwise receive little media attention, as well as how the city’s entrepreneurs are adapting to a changing economy. She will write articles of substance that meet The Ledger’s high standards. ”
