YubaNet.com has applied for Digital News Media membership in CNPA.
Susan Levitz is publisher and Pascale Fusshoeller is digital editor of the Nevada City-based company, founded in 1999.
Until confirmation by the CNPA Board of Directors on Feb. 4, YubaNet is a provisional member of CNPA and is eligible for all the benefits of a Digital News Media member.
“In addition to original reporting, news stories and links to a myriad of online resources, YubaNet.com is a forum for top-notch citizen journalism, inviting readers to contribute to the site’s content,” says its About Us page.
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.
