Q&A about the Charlotte News Alliance

Q: What is the Charlotte News Alliance?

Great journalism is happening out there. New community websites and lively blogs have cropped up in the Charlotte region, covering what's really important to people in their everyday lives. These hyperlocal sites drill into Charlotte's neighborhoods and communities. The Charlotte News Alliance will show off the best of this daily work through links on the home page of and articles in the newspaper.

Q: Who can join?

Websites and blogs in the Charlotte News Alliance must be committed to the basic tenets of journalism - truth and fairness. While a variety of content will be considered - from hard news to lifestyle to opinions - the work must be original. It must be relevant to the Charlotte region and suitable for a general audience.  We expect partners to update their sites at least five days a week.
