Insider Louisville is the future of information delivery — aggressive community journalism in the public interest, delivered instantly via an online, multi-media platform. Our mission is to deliver useful, engaging information using dynamic style and active lexicon. We report on critical issues such as business development and government accountability, as well as lifestyle, entertainment and Internet buzz about Louisville. We tell stories, tell them sharply and tell them accurately. And in a way they respect the intelligence of our audience. Our promise to you is:
- Insider Louisville will never bore you. We believe we can inform, entertain and even shock. We won’t be all things to all people. But we can focus more time and resources on the most compelling stories.
- Insider Louisville will never propagandize. We will never reduce the world into simplistic settings peopled by good guys and bad guys. We will never become shills for institutions and the local establishment.
- We at Insider Louisville believe that a literate, discerning and critical citizenry is crucial to the well-being of the republic and social stability.
We believe information consumers want more. We will succeed by creating an information delivery business that delivers a sophisticated product to the people who make a difference in our community.
