I’m Jonathan McFadden, the newest face of the Charlotte Observer’s hub for small-business news. Recently, I’ve started my journey from hanging out with cops and robbers to hobnobbing with innovators and inventors.
For nearly three years, I worked as the crime reporter for The Herald newspaper in Rock Hill.
Now, I’m here at the Observer contributing to ShopTalk’s mission to give readers reliable and helpful information about the brave souls in our coverage area who have the gumption to start their own business, build a brand or carve a niche. Those are the type of people I want to hear from, write about and come to know.
I look forward to this new adventure and sharing it all with you. I also hope to make it fun, interactive and – most of all – informative for all of us. So, let’s enjoy the ride together. Call me at 704-358-6045, drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, or find me on Twitter at @jmcfaddenobsbiz.
Never miss a local story.
By the way, the pink lamp at the left corner in my selfie was at my desk when I got here, I swear.
