Chattanooga online news outlet Nooga.com has entered into a partnership with 6AM City as part of the Greenville, South Carolina-based media company's expansion in the Southeast.
"We'd been evaluating market expansion and Chattanooga looked great on paper," Ryan Heafy, director of operations for 6AM City, said in a statement. "During our initial visit, we were blown away by the energy and sense of purpose on display everywhere we looked — we knew we wanted to find a way to be part of this community."
Ryan Johnston, managing director for 6AM City, said it's clear the two organizations share a lot of the same values and a vision for shaping the future of how they inform and empower communities.
Nooga.com founder Barry Large remains involved with the new venture and will join 6AM City in an advisory role.
