Print More

On Saturday, June 25, East Lansing Info (ELi) formally convened a special Task Force to research and make recommendations to help the Board of Directors chart a path forward for ELi’s future. After almost eight years of successful news production, due to loss of key staff and other challenges, the board has put a pause on ELi’s news reporting to form the task force to help chart a path for ELi’s future sustainability.

We would like to acknowledge all that Dr. Alice Dreger has done over the years to create and operate a local news organization that is transparent and operates with the utmost integrity. She has been on sabbatical from ELi, working on research, writing, and speaking projects that had been put on hold for years because of ELi’s needs and dealing with family concerns. This sabbatical is being interrupted so she can lead this task force. We would also like to acknowledge the experienced staff and talented reporters, skilled producers, and accomplished administrators who have worked with the organization over the years that helped in ELi’s success.

The Task Force is being led by Alice Dreger and includes as team members Nathan Andrus, Morgan Lees, Amalia Medina, Adan Quan, and Chris Root. These individuals are knowledgeable about the history of ELi, what our readers want in their local news, the culture of ELi, and the resources that it takes to deliver the news that East Lansing wants and needs.

We look forward to sharing with you the outcomes and recommendations of the Task Force as well as the decisions of the Board of Directors. Thank you to all of our readers for your continued support as we strive to be your high-quality news organization, informing people what is happening day-to-day in our City government, public schools, neighborhoods, local business community, parks, and arts and culture.
