DescriptionDavid Brewster couldn’t have been the only Seattle citizen concerned about the potential demise of one of his local papers but back in the mid-aughts he was ahead of the curve. In 2006 Brewster a thirty-five-year veteran of the local media landscape and the founder of alternative newspaper Seattle Weekly was phasing out of his role as director of Town Hall Seattle a community nonprofit public forum and public space when he set his sights on what would become Crosscut.com.
