Ep 11 - Jay Allred of Richland Source



Jay Allred is the president of Richland Source, a thriving LION site in central Ohio. Jay and Richland Source have found business success through a diversified revenue stream that includes advertising, marketing services and membership. And it has done so while serving a small Rust Belt city, staying true to its altruistic local mission, and eschewing clickbait and negativity. We talked with Jay about Richland Source's founding, growth and future -- and about what an inevitable economic downturn may mean for LIONs and legacy media companies.
