FM Stations That Don’t Reach Far, but Reach Deep - The New York Times: "An early low-power success story is WNHH 103.5 FM in New Haven, Conn., started by Paul Bass, a veteran journalist. Mr. Bass founded The New Haven Independent, an online newspaper, in 2005; it has largely eclipsed the more than 200-year-old New Haven Register as the city’s civic watchdog. The key, he said, was eschewing the news industry’s growing enthusiasm for click bait, hastily shot videos and incessant tweeting, all at the expense of actual reporting.
“I felt the role of the reporter had to go back to old-school ‘shoe leather’ fact-gathering and analysis,” he said. Mr. Bass hopes to apply the same formula — and outcome — to WNHH."
