Description

Former Star Tribune publisher Joel Kramer, his wife, Laurie, and three other couples launched MinnPost with personal contributions totaling $850,000. Now its board is hoping that Andrew Wallmeyer, the first publisher of the online news and commentary site, can build a bigger and broader revenue base for the nonprofit. Capitalizing on his background as a business journalist and a McKinsey consultant, Wallmeyer is working to diversify revenue sources and increase reader loyalty through a membership structure similar to public radio’s.
