Dear Dispatch Reader,
We have news.
Not “news” news. But news—really good news—about The Dispatch.
At a time when many media outlets are experiencing a dramatic dropoff in viewers, readership, and subscriptions—The Dispatch is growing. Our free email list—the one that you’re a part of—has grown 24 percent since November. That’s great. But there’s more: Dispatch membership is up 22 percent since November. And our existing members are renewing their memberships at an extraordinary rate—far above industry standards and our own best-case scenarios. That means many of the people reading our work are willing to pay for more of it and those already paying for it find it valuable—and there’s no greater validation of our founding vision than that.
