The Ann Arbor Chronicle is a local news website covering Ann Arbor, Mich.
The Chronicle was launched in 2008 by Dave Askins and Mary Morgan and focuses primarily on longer-form local government reporting. It is funded primarily through advertising, though the for-profit site also takes donations, which it calls “subscriptions” and which accounted for 22 percent of its revenue in 2011. It holds events for subscribers as well. In 2012, the founders said it brought in $100,000 annually and was growing at 16 percent per year.
