The Maine Monitor’s editor joined the fellow leaders of two other nonprofit journalism outlets March 28 for a panel discussion on the unique and vital role that nonprofit journalism plays in Maine’s news ecosystem.

The publications are part of the movement of nonprofit news outlets around the country that are filling the gaps created by the shrinkage of for-profit news outlets.

The panel, hosted by the University of Maine Farmington, included The Maine Monitor’s editor David Dahl; J.W. Oliver, editor of The Harpswell Anchor; Janice Thompson, director of development and operations at The Harpswell Anchor, and Andre Cormier, executive director of The Daily Bulldog.
