If you’re saddened by the departure of Geoff Calkins from the Commercial Appeal, you’re not alone. Although the paper’s staff continues to shrink, rumor has it that a new, nonprofit media outlet is coming to Memphis – one that promises to provide in-depth coverage of the everyday issues facing Memphians.
In fact, Calkins hinted at the creation of such a publication in a Facebook post, stating the outlet would be “written by Memphians for Memphians.” This is refreshing news for many residents. While the launch date isn’t certain, The Memphis 100 promises to keep you updated as this situation develops.
