My Edmonds News founder Teresa Wippel to speak at Rotary Club of Edmonds meeting Aug. 1

Teresa Wippel

My Edmonds News founder Teresa Wippel will be the guest speaker at the Tuesday, Aug. 1 Rotary Club of Edmonds meeting.

A longtime journalist who has lived in Edmonds since 1985, Wippel started My Edmonds News in 2009. She now serves as the president and CEO of the My Neighborhood News Network, a recently formed nonprofit news organization that includes My Edmonds News as well as online publications in Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood. She is a past member of Edmonds-South Snohomish County Historical Society Board and the Edmonds Economic Development Commission. She was named Edmonds Citizen of the Year in 2019.

Wippel will talk about the state of local journalism, and why it is more important than ever. She’ll also share her thoughts about why she decided to change the direction of My Neighborhood News Network and register as a nonprofit news organization.

The public is invited to attend this presentation Aug. 1 at Claire’s Pantry, 301 Main St., Edmonds. The meeting starts at noon. The only cost is the purchase of your own lunch and beverage.

  1. I am sure a lot of us know the importance of My Edmonds News in our community, and Teresa has created that news arena for Edmonds over many years. We need to support Teresa for all that she provides with her clarity and impartial information of our towns activities and government.

    1. Three communities, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, & Edmonds. So acronyms might be MELT or, using My Neighborhood News Network, NNNM…y 😉

        1. MNNN? And to avoid “men”, one could completely change the name to Our Neighbors News Network,
          and Voila, you end up with ONNN, as in our “own”. Nice ring to it! 😉

  2. A non-ideological and not for profit, beyond paying costs of publication, communication vehicle for all to read and comment in is vital to having and maintaining any sort of true democratic system of governance. Teresa and MEN have now given our community that great gift. The first thing wanna be tyrants, at any level of government, try to attack is freedom of the press and the dissemination of facts based on the truth as much as the truth can be accurately determined.

  3. I think we are all fortunate to have such a strong and dedicated local news resource in our community. It would be hard to overstate Teresa’s contribution and impact in that regard for well over the past decade.

    Our Rotary Club is very much looking forward to Teresa’s presentation on the state of local news and the recent transition of My Neighborhood News Network to a non-profit. Guests are absolutely welcome to attend, as they are at all our club meetings. The meeting is from noon to one and Teresa’s presentation will be about 30 minutes, including Q&A to the extent there is time. As mentioned in Teresa’s article, lunch is available for purchase. No reservations or advanced registration needed. The only limit is the capacity of the venue. Hope to see you there!!
