Welcome to Anderson Alerts!
North Carolina freelance journalist Bryan Anderson breaks down the biggest political news you need to know from the Tar Heel State.
Welcome to the Anderson Alerts family, where the mission is clear: Providing readers with valuable political news coming out of North Carolina. These alerts will shed light on key issues as they unfold. Here, there are no page view goals, television ratings or weekly story quotas. The goal is simply to share news developments in real time.
If you believe in the mission, please consider subscribing or becoming a founding member! Non-paying subscribers may get occasional weekly updates catching them up on the news that they missed, while paid subscribers will be informed consistently as news unfolds.
Why this, why now?
Having covered North Carolina politics for a number of organizations, I am all too aware of the need for good contextual journalism that serves the public good. In far too many places, reporters are excelling in spite of their conditions, not because of them. It is my hope this forum will be how I can best serve readers as I search for a good permanent reporting home.
Where the money goes
It is not my intent or desire to personally profit off the individual subscribers to this Substack. This platform is designed to serve the public good. After covering reporting expenses (i.e. gas, meals, parking), all remaining subscription proceeds will go 100% to charity. By becoming a paid subscriber, you are supporting the reporting itself and underresourced charitable organizations. The money will not go to political causes.
If any news organizations wish to share Anderson Alerts through licensing agreements, I will keep those profits to support my continued reporting.
What you get
Anderson Alerts will be published as news unfolds or stories emerge that I can offer more in-depth reporting on. Readers can generally expect to receive multiple Anderson Alerts on a given week, with some weeks of minimal activity and some weeks of high activity. The frequency of alerts will depend on the merits of the news itself and my bandwidth to report on those developments. Here’s what you will get depending on the type of subscription you choose:
PAID SUBSCRIBERS/FOUNDING MEMBERS:
All Anderson Alerts
Exclusive Interview Q&A’s
Occasional Weekly Recaps
