Sue Cross, CEO, INN

Sue brings 30 years of experience in media syndication, distribution and licensing. As SVP for business development and partnerships at the global nonprofit news cooperative Associated Press, she worked with digital pure plays, broadcast and newspaper companies to explore new business models.

Fran brings a Harvard MBA and 20 years of experience in news media, business development and business coaching to INN members. Like many members, Fran started her career in media as a reporter. She eventually moved into news product and revenue development. Prior to INN, she spent seven years coaching entrepreneurs on how to set their strategy, identify business models, find new revenue streams and support their mission. But we all know: the news business never lets anyone go and Fran decided to return to news and INN’s mission of supporting nonprofit news organizations.
