When you get to be a certain age – let’s be gentle and just say “over 60” – a year passes in the flutter of a hummingbird’s wing. That is how it has been in my year as CEO of the Kyiv Post. It has been a race to cut expenses, raise revenue and ensure independent journalism.
Without a financially secure Kyiv Post, independent journalism and “the World’s Window on Ukraine” (the weekly paper and the regularly updated website) were threatened.
Thanks to our advertisers and readers, a dedicated editorial staff that does more with less and an energized commercial team that refuses to leave a kopek on the table, we’ve turned the corner. For me, it continues to be a fascinating ride back to the future.
