-30- A farewell from The American Independent
The American Independent is in a period of transition.
David Bennahum, CEO and founder of the American Independent News Network (AINN), our parent company, announced that many of the AINN network’s state-based sites will be shutting down. Throughout the network, many talented and dedicated journalists have been let go, including the majority of TAI’s reporters. The TAI team knows that they will continue to do journalism that is insightful and original and that changes the way people talk about politics — no matter where they practice it. Several reporters in the network will continue to write for TAI in a new form.
In the words of Bennahum, the restructuring of AINN is part of a “shift in strategy, towards new forms of journalism made available as technology has advanced, and an increasing emphasis on national coverage and issue-based coverage from our network.”
TAI is the youngest site in the AINN network, created in May 2010. John Amick was TAI’s editor.
Current and former TAI writers and editors have promoted AINN’s longstanding mission to “create impact in the public interest.”
