It seems like no matter what news outlet you tune into, today's media is full of anger, fear and division. John Garrett had a different vision for news - to be a light and rise above the division. He remembers thinking "I don't know how it's going to turn out but I feel like it's the right thing to do". In 2005, Founders and Co-CEOs John and Jennifer Garrett launched the first edition of Community Impact Newspaper. Today 2.4M mailboxes receive Community Impact Newspaper. This story is full of vision, encouragement and wisdom.
John Garrett started Community Impact Newspaper from the game room of his home with his wife and best friend, Jennifer. The belief that everyone—not just the insiders—should know what is happening in their own backyard prompted him to leave news company giants and start his own news organization. John and Jennifer launched the first edition of CI in 2005.
