DescriptionThe challenges have been twofold for Christopher Spencer the veteran reporter who founded Ozarks Unbound after he was laid off from his gig at the Morning News of Northwest Arkansas. The first simply is revenue. The second is establishing a journalistic brand when there’s only one of him (with three contributors) cranking out news about northwest Arkansas a metro region of nearly a half-million people that is home to the University of Arkansas Tyson Foods and Walmart. “I can compete one-on-one with just about any of the reporters” at the local daily Spencer says. “I can’t compete with all of them.”
