Mark Potts is the managing editor of Journal of Alta California (Alta), the quarterly magazine founded by William R. Hearst III. Over the past 25 years, Mark has been an innovator in print and online media. He created one of the first electronic news prototypes in the early 1990s, and then co-founded The Washington Post Co.’s digital division. He was a member of the founding team of @Home Network, where he led the creation of the first consumer broadband programming service. As co-founder of Backfence and GrowthSpur, Mark was a pioneer in the field of hyperlocal media. A longtime journalist, he was a reporter and editor for The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Examiner and Associated Press, and was editor of the Lawrence (KS) Journal-World when it was named one of “10 Newspapers That Do It Right” by Editor & Publisher in 2013.
