I started DNAinfo in 2009 at a time when few people were investing in media companies. But I believed an opportunity existed to build a successful company that would report unbiased neighborhood news and information. These were stories that weren't getting told, and because I believe people care deeply about the things that happen where they live and work, I thought we could build a large and loyal audience that advertisers would want to reach.A lot of what I believed would happen did, but not all of it. . . . DNAinfo is, at the end of the day, a business, and businesses need to be economically successful if they are to endure.
