Angie Newsome

Carolina Public Press

North Carolina native Angie Newsome earned a bachelor's degree from Warren Wilson College and a master's degree in journalism at UNC-Chapel Hill before becoming a reporting and writing fellow at The Poynter Institute and a business and investigative reporter at the Asheville Citizen-Times. Newsome has worked as a freelance reporter and editor for a variety of publications and organizations and, most recently, managed a project networking news and information websites with the region's largest daily newspaper. An award-winning reporter, Newsome is dedicated to making Carolina Public Press the go-to source for thoughtful, in-depth and investigative reporting and photojournalism about Western North Carolina.

After months of research, crafting a business plan and securing initial sponsors and grant funding, she launched Carolina Public Press in March 2011. It is the region's first online-only nonprofit news site and media project dedicated to in-depth, investigative and independent journalism for and about western North Carolina. CPP's reporting was already featured in print, on TV and on radio throughout the state, only months after its inception.
