What’s next for newspaper startups in California?
What’s on the horizon for them in California right now?
We’ve got you covered with a roundup of the hottest startups that are looking to make it big in the industry right now.
The next wave in newspaper startups is set to start in the next few weeks, with the first wave of startups expected to launch in the fall.
The California Newspaper Association (CNA), a trade group for the state’s major newspapers, has forecast the first batch of startups will launch in November.
The group is working to build a database of more than 5,000 newspapers, which will be updated periodically.
California’s next wave is expected to be similar to the previous wave, with some of the biggest names expected to make the jump to the Bay Area in the coming months.
First up are two companies, i-News and WUOW, which aim to offer an online news platform and a website for news publications to sell content.
Both companies are backed by a number of media and technology giants, including Google, Facebook and Netflix.
WUOW’s founder, Mike Mancuso, previously worked for Yahoo!
It’s been about two years since WUow announced its plans to launch a news portal, and it’s still in the early stages.
The company launched its website in May, and will soon have the ability to sell subscription-based content.
Mancumos plans are to open up the platform to anyone, whether they are an advertiser, reader or advertiser-friendly platform.
