  • Letter to Our RoundTable Readers, Our Transition to a Not-for-Profit

    June 4.  We’ve been around town for more than 20 years now, and we hope that our newspaper has been a good companion to you during that time. Many of you sent letters to the editor, news about your organizations, ideas for stories, and photos of yourselves, family and friends reading the RoundTable, here in Evanston and around the world. We want to let you know that the RoundTable’s operations have been assumed by Evanston RoundTable Media NFP, a not-for-profit organization incorporated in Illinois on April 15. 

  • On April 15, Evanston RoundTable Media NFP was incorporated as an Illinois non-for-profit corporation, and it has since taken over the operation of this news site, formerly operated by Evanston RoundTable LLC. Click on the headline for more information about our plans to build on and enhance the RoundTable’s news coverage.

  • The Evanston RoundTable Media NFP has a “launch board” that will govern the new organization on a transitional basis. This Board is composed of a small group of people, almost all of whom have worked extensively with the RoundTable LLC in the past. Their past experience will help ensure a smooth transition to non-profit status and the continued operation of the online news site during the transition. Click on the headline for a list of the Board members, with short bios.

  • More than 30 people, all of whom have significant ties to Evanston. have agreed to serve on the Advisory Committee. One important role of the Advisory Committee is to provide input to members of the Board and the editorial staff about ways to improve the educational value of the paper and help ensure the paper is addressing issues with a lens on social justice and equity. Click on the headline for a list of the Advisory Committee members, with short bios.

  • Most of our editors, reporters, photographers and designers have worked with the Evanston RoundTable for many years. In the last 10 years, they have received approximately 150 journalism awards from journalism associations.  Click on the headline for a list of our editorial staff, with short bios.

  • Evanston RoundTable Media NFP subscribes to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Click on the headline to view our policy.
