Recently, many journalists and media professionals have moved their newsletters and blogs to Substack, a platform for individual creators to distribute and monetize the content they create — including well-known voices like Casey Newton (The Verge), Alex Kantrowitz (BuzzFeed) and our guest, Loren Feldman. Why are so many joining the Substackerati, and how is Substack already changing how PR professionals work?
For nearly two decades, Loren Feldman covered entrepreneurs for Inc., Forbes, and The New York Times. In September 2019, Loren left established media outlets to found 21 Hats. 21 Hats is an educational blog, newsletter, and podcast aimed to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Hear how Loren made the leap and how platforms like Substack are changing the media landscape.
