6/16/2021 - Rotary Recap - DI News

June 16, 2021 - Rotary Roundup. We were pleased to have Sue Detar, Founder and Publisher of the Daniel Island News, was the speaker at our weekly breakfast meeting held virtually. Sue was an attorney in Pennsylvania before relocating to Daniel Island in 1997. While teaching at Charleston Southern she had an idea to create a local paper. The first paper was published on October 30, 2003. The paper published 7000 weekly copies with nearly 20,000 readers. She feels like they have a strong model but continues to change and adapt. Sue feels that local news is essential for democracy. She has focused on creating a more online presence through additional emails of The Current (on Mondays) and Featured Properties (on Thursdays). The newspaper is always looking for creative ways to generate revenue, so we look forward to future events such as Bark in the Park. The DI News focuses on their goals which include: to be accurate and fair, support the community, give good customer service and to provide their employees a good source of income. WE APPRECIATE ALL YOU DO SUE😊
