OUR MISSION, OUR PASSION
Since 1997, millions of people have turned to the Good News Network® as an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media. Because of its long history, staying power, and public trust, GNN is #1 on Google for good news.
The website, with its archive of 21,000 positive news stories from around the globe, confirms what people already know—that good news itself is not in short supply; the broadcasting of it is. From our 5-star app, to our new book (And Now, The Good News: 20 Years of Inspiring News Stories), to our weekly Good News Gurus podcast, and Morning Jolt email newsletter, GNN is a daily dose of hope for millions of fans.
Thomas Jefferson said the job of journalists was to portray accurately what was happening in society. GNN was founded because the media was failing to report the positive news. In the 1990’s while homicide rates in the U.S. plummeted by 42 percent, television news coverage of murders surged more than 700%, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs.
“If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation.” –Norman Cousins, Journalist and Editor
One person has been the force behind the website since it was first launched in her lakeside home while she raised three kids. The woman dubbed the “Good News Guru” by the Washington Post, Geri Weis-Corbley became the first expert in the field of positive news in the U.S, and today her website serves millions of page views each month. With 35 years of experience in television production and online news media, she has been a producer, director, editor, videographer, and author. She has appeared on TV and radio, and on stage as a public speaker and author, extolling the benefits of a regular dose of “News to Enthuse”. (Contact Geri Below)Read more
