Chicago Reader to become a non-profit
Employees of a beloved alt-weekly in Chicago are celebrating the end of a months-long fight with management that had threatened to put them out of business.
The Chicago Reader had planned to become a nonprofit organization to shore up its finances, but members of the management held up that process after editors ordered a fact-check of an opinion piece written by the paper’s co-owner, Len Goodman.
That is, until Tuesday when Goodman and three board members announced they would step aside.
Here & Now‘s Celeste Headlee speaks with Philip Montoro, music editor of the Chicago Reader.
