Why subscribe?

When it comes to business news in Charlotte, there’s a lot of noise out there. The Charlotte Ledger saves you time by cutting through it all to deliver important and interesting local business news to your inbox. Three days a week, we will help you understand the big stories and tell you things you don’t know. And we might even have a little fun.

Subscriptions are free. Subscribers receive full access to the newsletter and website.

In November 2019, the Ledger announced a plan for the future that includes making some content available only to customers who pay a monthly fee, though some content will remain available for free. That plan will not start until late winter/early spring of 2020. You can find more details on the reasons for that in this post.

Our values

  • Our focus is on publishing timely, informative and interesting business news that affects people in the Charlotte region.

  • We strive for fairness and accuracy and will correct all known errors.

  • The content reflects the independent editorial judgment of The Charlotte Ledger.

  • Any advertising, paid marketing or sponsored content will be clearly marked.

A grand experiment

The Charlotte Ledger began in March 2019 as an experiment: How much interest do people in the Charlotte region have in local, independent business news? As with most experiments, it will evolve as we figure out better ways to serve our readers. If you have story tips or ideas or feedback, drop me a line at editor@cltledger.com.
