“The long story short is that I’m just a guy lucky enough to pick up a video camera. How that went down is quite a tale, and the fact that I get to do what I love every day is something that I’ll always cherish and be forever grateful for.”
Delaware Newsline was created in 2016 by George Shea, a Delaware photojournalist with a vision to provide a digital community news broadcasting platform for the unheard voices of Delaware. It all started in late 2015 while George was working at the News Journal Media Group, where he served in various roles including business operations, technical support, and sales for over 14 years.
At the time, George developed a passion for photojournalism, and realized that not only were community issues being under-reported, but voices from the community were being unheard, and under-represented in traditional media.
George then realized that community based reporting was critical in bringing awareness and engagement to the community-and to it’s leaders. George believed that a community supported platform was needed and Delaware Newsline was born and now Delaware Newsline is DNTV Digital.
A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE NEWS PRODUCER
Across the country, a new not for profit news reporting model is emerging. Online news sites are taking up the slack and delivering news in the public interest. Readers are beginning to contribute to new public media news sources instead of paying subscription fees to for-profit newsrooms.
Unfortunately, this online news distribution system cannot cover the significant costs associated with in-depth news reporting. I am asking for your financial support to help pay experienced reporters, photographers, videographers, and contributors to go into the courts, the community, and the offices of government to find and tell important stories in a journalistic non-biased way.
While we work towards making DNTV Digital a 501(c)(3) corporation, we are currently a for-profit, independent news organization that fuels independent journalism. With your help, we can produce independent, investigative journalism, and report on important issues that will help create real, long-lasting change. Your voluntary contribution to our mission is greatly appreciated.
Learn more about how you can help us make this happen or to get more information about your donation while we await a 501(c)(3) status.
