Heartland Internet Media Networks of Nokomis, IL, has become a leader in new media communications as well as information technology since 2011.

We've been involved in broadcast media since 2005 and ran internet radio station WWPM MediaNet from 2010 until 2013. We combined our expertise and passion for information technology and journalism when we launched our news website Heartland Newsfeed on December 31, 2016.

We were a driving instrument behind the syndication of a music program called the Vault of Midnight Podcast to 30 radio stations, until production halted in 2013 due to host Tom Green dealing with serious complications related to Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS). Green passed away in March 2015, leaving further production in indefinite hiatus.

In spring 2017, we began discussions with Deep South Media Group in producing a series of best-of podcasts, with a special memorializing Green. Plans are to produce those episodes in 2018 or 2019, with plans to revive the podcast with new hosts in the near future.

Heartland Newsfeed accrued 375,000 views in its first year and was among the top 50,000 websites in the United Kingdom. We are currently (as of June 10, 2018) in the top 200,000 in both the world and in the United States, with more than 115,000 views per month.

We're trying to keep our content free, but with limited advertisers and not much in advertising revenue, it's not easy staying online. Anything you can contribute will be much appreciated.

We understand if you can't commit to a monthly contribution, so we have additional options for one-time (and perhaps other monthly contribution methods) you can utilize -- which you can find on our website at http://heartlandnewsfeed.com/support-us/cash-crypt...

There are some other projects in the wheelhouse and we will share those with you as they begin to go into production and preparing to go live.
