DescriptionThe rise of the Internet along with some significant (and not coincidental) old-media belt-tightening has inspired many a traditional journalist to look for work on the web. But that’s not the story of Hispanic Nashville. John Lamb created the blog in 2003 as a means of highlighting local media coverage of Nashville’s Hispanic community and has developed the site into a news source in its own right. Neither a displaced nor aspiring journalist he has no desire to turn the site into a lucrative enterprise and remains the blog’s editor and only consistent contributor. Its audience is growing but Lamb remains modest. “I want it to be clear that this is a hobby just like fishing” he says. “I just go to the web instead of going to the lake.”
