From St. Paul to Guatemala, Laos and beyond – Round Earth Media redefines journalism in a digital age

by Tristan Pollock


RoundEarthMediaAs the practice of journalism through traditional media outlets continues to experience obstacles that could result in complete collapse, there are numerous entrepreneurial initiatives sprouting up across the nation to fill the void. Round Earth Media is a perfect example of how and where twenty-first century journalism can be effective during our transition from legacy to new media.

Round Earth Media was founded six years ago by two veteran journalists, Mary Stucky and Mary Losure. This is not your typical news source. While Stucky and the Board of Directors reside in Minnesota, they operate via completely virtual means. That means no office, no local news room and contributors spread across the globe.
