Dear Readers & Supporters,

Since our launch in 2014 as The Global Tribune and our rise to being Signature News & Radio, it has been our chief aim to provide a platform for journalist and journalism. We have endeavored to give an opportunity to any writer or publisher who had something important and newsworthy to say. We extended opportunities to freelancers to have their stories told without restriction and corporate political correctness. However, like most business ventures we have hit a hard bump in this journey.

For the last two months, you may have noticed a great downturn in the amount and quality of content being populated by Signature News & Radio via signature.fm. This is in part due to a recent change in content distribution by our primary content source Reuters. This change resulted in a higher price for the content which essentially leaves us without the capital needed to continue proper operations.

The Signature News & Radio parent company motto is “Excellence & Elegance,” this is the only we operate. Anything a step below that will not suffice for us. We will bring your excellence & elegance or pause until we are able to do so.

In 2016, we launched a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $2,000. We again kicked off another in August 2017 to enter the next phase to raise $60,000.00. This effort gained some steamed but has stalled, with daily offers from “crowdfunding” experts that promise funding for a fee we are stuck. So, we are turning directly to you for help!

We are bypassing the traditional crowdfunding brand such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo with all their rules, regulations & fees to raise the needed $60,000 to fund the next phase of Signature News & Radio.

WHAT WE’VE ACCOMPLISHED SINCE OUR LAST CROWDFUND:

  • Purchased premium specialty domain name(signature.fm).
  • Upgraded web hosting servers.
  • Launched in Apple News
  • Updated and upgraded the look and feel of www.signature.fm
  • Entered into partnership with Reuters for the purchase of content, videos and pictures, charts and other additional information for content development.
  • Purchased equipment for radio broadcasting & transmission.

THE PLAN FOR THE NEXT PHASE:  

  •  Lease of office space La Gran Plaza Office Tower for two years. A prime location 10-15 minutes away from the heart of Downtown Fort Worth. $20K
  • Solidify corporate & individual memberships with nationally recognized press associations/clubs to secure press credentials for major political movements, events/concerts, conferences, companies, celebrities, press conferences, sports leagues and more. This would allow us to further allow us to bring even more content. $2K
  • Provide internship opportunities to broadcast/journalism students and small scholarships in the same field. $7K
  • Provide a budget for free-lance journalist, guest columnist & bloggers to write for SNR Press. $3K
  • Continued partnership with Reuters and develop a partnership with the Associated Press (AP) for a wider range of news and current event content via text, audio, image & video. $2K
  • Launch the official radio arm by producing world-class online radio shows and music. Also to secure proper licenses for music play. $3K
  • Develop and deploy an official app in the App Store® & the Google Play Store® to listen to our shows on the go and receive news on the go. $1K
  • Provide a budget for continued administrative upkeep and organization (accountants, auditors, legal expenses, operations etc.). $15K
  • Kickstarter rewards/gifts – $7K

“The lowest form of popular culture – lack of information, misinformation, disinformation and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people’s lives – has overrun real journalism.” — Carl Bernstein
