Ink newspaper

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ink was a weekly publication targeted to Northeast Indiana's Black community. Based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Ink was published by Diversity Media Group, Inc., a locally owned, family-owned company founded in 2001 by siblings Vince Robinson and Terri Miller.


Known for its use of design, color and photographs, Ink distinguished itself with its consistent coverage of local issues and events.[citation needed] The paper had a weekly circulation of more than 9,500 readers thanks to a combination of paid subscribers, single-copy purchasers and free distribution to more than 100 area Black churches in Fort Wayne, Kokomo, and Marion, Indiana. Ink has been honored with a number of awards, including the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce Diversity Business Award, the NAACP's Media Award and the U.S. Small Business Administration's Indiana Journalist of the Year award for editor-in-chief Vince Robinson.[citation needed]

There is now a similar newspaper called Ink Spot Newspaper.[1][2]
