West Hollywood-based WEHOville has applied to be a Digital News Member of CNPA. Hank Scott is publisher of the company, which was founded in 2012.
“WEHOville has two primary goals,” its website says. “One is to be the complete source of information we need to make the most of life in California’s most creative and diverse city. That means WEHOville covers a wide range of subjects and covers the variety of communities that make West Hollywood such an interesting place to live. Our other goal is to foster an informed and engaged community. A city can only thrive and prosper if we have the information we need to make crucial decisions, whether about politics, development, preservation, traffic, taxes or spending.”
Until confirmation by the CNPA Board of Directors on Oct. 24, WEHOville is a provisional member of CNPA and is eligible for all the benefits of a Digital News Media member.
CNPA defines “Digital News Media” as an organization that posts news and information of a local character, using digital media that may include the internet, websites, mobile and tablet technology. Online publications can be paid or free news websites or electronic news publications with at least 50 percent local news content, rather than aggregated, copied or reprinted from other sources, with a substantial portion produced by local staff in California.
