Ask the Editor: What kind of stories will you feature?

With so many kinds of information online, it can be hard to cut through the clutter and find the news you most need to know.

That’s why we here at Community Impact hold strong to our motto, “Print Ain’t Dead.” While we know how important online news is today, we still believe that our approach to print-first journalism is what sets us apart from the rest.

In print, there are no pop-ups, no videos and no comments to distract you from unbiased, nonpartisan stories that simply bring you information and let you make decisions for yourself.

Each issue of Community Impact Newspaper will feature monthly stories on transportation projects, fun events, stories about locally-owned businesses and deep dives into issues affecting the Southwest Nashville area.

We hope this issue brings you news you can use throughout the month. Have a story idea or issue you think should be covered? Let us know at swnnews@communityimpact.com.
