And Here's The Pitch...
Amid newspapers’ struggles with ad sales and circulation, Stephanie and Adam Carey purchased Kansas City’s alternative publication The Pitch late last year. They called it a longtime dream, and pledged an increased local focus.
They look at the venture, their vision, and the future of the now-monthly magazine in a discussion joined by The Pitch’s editor, David Hudnall. Hudnall has acknowledged “working with pretty limited resources,” but vowed to “continue to do all the same stuff we have always done: investigative stories, arts coverage, food reviews, etc.”
The transition puts the publication back in local hands; the new owners are respective graduates of Blue Valley Northwest and Shawnee Mission Northwest high schools. Stephanie Carey serves as publisher, husband Adam as chief operating officer.
