How digital news startups choose between for-profit and non-profit status
from Media Shift
Last spring, when Tasneem Raja and her husband, Chris Groskopf, launched a hyper-local digital magazine in Tyler, Texas, they were more newsroom colleagues than business partners.

"Our plan was to take our skills as national journalists and apply them in our own backyard," said Raja, the editor and publisher.
