Ep 7 - Field Walsh of TXK Today



It didn't take Field Walsh long to find success publishing a local, indie news site in his hometown of Texarkana, Texas. Despite not having a journalism background, Field quickly grew an audience thanks in large part to dogged coverage of breaking news, at a time when the local dead tree paper was mostly reporting things that happened the day before. We talked to Field about a range of topics, from using drones for breaking news coverage to racking up tons of engagement on Facebook to growing banner ad sales at a time when sponsored content is trendier.
