Your sponsorship message will reach thousands of readers each day through CoastalReview.org.
WHAT IS CRO? CoastalReview.org, or CRO, is a daily, online news service covering the North Carolina coast.
WHO PRODUCES IT? CRO is published by the North Carolina Coastal Federation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to protecting and restoring the North Carolina coast.
THE NEED CRO launched in February 2012 to fill a growing gap in in-depth reporting on coastal issues as newsrooms across the state reduced their reporting teams.
THE TEAM Led by Editor Mark Hibbs and Assistant Editor Jennifer Allen, both veteran journalists formerly with the Carteret County News-Times, and including Staff Writer Trista Talton, CRO also draws on the expertise of experienced reporters and freelancers here on the coast, statewide and beyond to deliver unbiased and objective breaking stories, coastal science news and features on the people, places and culture of the North Carolina coast.
AWARDS CRO is a recognized leader in coastal news coverage and an accredited member of the North Carolina Press Association. CRO has won more than 100 statewide awards for editorial excellence.
CIRCULATION CRO stories receive statewide and sometimes worldwide circulation, with top readership in Raleigh, Charlotte, Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York, Virginia, and of course the N.C. coast, including Wilmington, Morehead City, and the Outer Banks.
