The team at GreatNews.Life has had a wonderful year serving you as the GREAT news outlet for the Region. The team has never wavered throughout the pandemic and beyond. The commitment from our team members to our partners and the communities we serve has stepped forward on all fronts with no plans of stepping back. Here’s some of the ways we’ve continued to bring the good news to you this past year.
Life in the Spotlight
The Life in the Spotlight series published weekly across our four networks features members of the Northwest Indiana community who make a difference. This year, we’ve highlighted 208 outstanding Northwest Indiana citizens.
It’s important to provide the next generation of communicators with real experience to develop their skills. Our #1StudentNWI Journalism Program continues to work with 30 high schools across Lake, Porter, La Porte, and St. Joseph counties to tell the stories they want to tell.
Our graduation coverage expanded to over 50 schools this year. Our photographers captured thousands of unique, in-the-moment images that make up the Region’s largest library of graduation pictures, showcasing incredible, impactful milestones throughout our entire coverage area.
All About the Girls 2022
This year’s All About the Girls event was our largest yet with over 300 women attending to celebrate each other. The companion podcast series has grown dramatically across all platforms, featuring segments that touch the hearts and minds of women in the Region and beyond.
Leadership Life Series
Our Leadership Life series gives local leaders within the community a platform to connect with listeners. It’s grown and developed to include well-known leaders and influencers throughout the Region, such as NIPSCO’s Mike Hooper and Indiana’s Secretary of State Holli Sullivan, and features segments covering healthcare, government, and education industries.
None of these achievements would have been possible without you. Without our supporters, we never could have been anything more than a crazy notion started 14 years ago. We would have never told the 65,000+ stories we’ve published, taken the 850,000 photos in the largest library in Northwest Indiana, or reached our 86,000 unique readers. We have been through challenges and are happy to report that good news is doing great.
