"Positive information benefits us emotionally, physically, and mentally. It contributes to a happier, healthier life."
By Good News Network Wednesday, March 08, 2006
Hi there! I'm Geri Weis-Corbley, the founder and editor/publisher of the Good News Network®. I began this effort in 1997 with a passion to serve humanity in doses of positive news. Now my goal is to make this a business. I want to be the first person to really prove that good news sells.
My background is in television (news and production). I did some good news podcasting in 2007 and sent a reel in to a contest to find a new NPR host. My vision includes radio, TV and print. We're building a movement while growing a business.
The mission is to provide a "Daily Dose of News to Enthuse." The Good News Network® is a clearinghouse for the gathering and dissemination of positive compelling news stories from around the globe. Daily stories will confirm what we already believe: good news itself is not in short supply; the advertising of it is.
No place for negative news? Negative news is an important staple of any well-informed citizenry and necessary for society's evolution. But, today we are in dire need of a well-balanced media diet. Local TV news, especially, has been continually feeding us junk food. We need to be informed by a world view that is not dripping with sensationalism and attuned to the police scanner.
Why Good News? There are many ways that positive news can improve our lives by bringing emotional well-being, health and even prosperity.
How do we define 'good' news? Good question. No matter what the story line, "compelling" is the bottom line. We try to find news that's worth your time. We have a Good News Philosophy which defines our content and audience. Our audience shares a set of values that leads to common ground. For instance, our target audience shares a commitment to personal development and environmentally-friendly living.
The GNN Team of volunteers make this Website run more smoothly. We are growing and evolving and would love to have you join. Just drop us a line and tell us about yourself. The only requirement is passion.
Founder/Publisher's Bio — From her launch in the summer of 1997 through a two-year sabbatical in 2004–06, to a new site design in 2007, Geri has guided the Good News Network® with an enthusiasm and passion unmatched in the realm of positive media. During the 1980's she roamed the halls of Congress and the White House during her 10-year career in TV news. Today she leads a movement to provide more balance and inspiration in your media diet.

This site is dedicated to the 50 million like myself who are invested with an interest in carving out a more sustainable and loving world. Activists and social change agents need reminders of the progress being made in the world to keep from burning out and becoming embittered. GN Network will keep a constant vigil for them, trying to lighten their load and brighten their day with proof that we are making great progress.
Many years of honorable labor has brought us to this exciting place, the home of a new community, still called the Good News Network®, but with more success in the equation...
Welcome, and enjoy!
