The ECOreport Website

The ECOreport

I built the ECOreport in December 2013 and registered it as a business, in British Columbia,  on January 31, 2014.

From the beginning, it was  a news website focusing on the West Coast, from British Columbia to California, but also covering stories from other areas as they seem relevant. Roughly a third of the site’s contents were original and the remainder was primarily reposts from other sources.

The ECOreport is also a radio program that has been broadcast on Cortes Community Radio, CKTZ 89.5 FM since 2014.

After becoming President of Cortes Community Radio, in June 2017, I redesigned the ECOreport as my personal website.

There is no revenue stream.

As many of the stories are reposted on larger sites, the ECOreport has a much larger reach than may seem apparent.
