BUFFALO, N.Y. — Investigative Post launched 10 years ago today. In the succeeding years, our nonprofit newsroom has built a reputation for fact-based, high-impact reporting.
A billionaire is pouring money — $15 million the first year of operation alone — to launch a nonprofit news organization in Baltimore.
Five foundations are putting up $20 million to start a similar venture in Houston.
Me? I started Investigative Post with my credit card and an understanding wife.
It was the fall of 2011. I had just taken a buyout from The Buffalo News, where I had worked for 25 years. I’d had enough.
