News-to-Table is Pressland’s digital trade publication dedicated to the issues of media trust and transparency. The site is updated weekly with features, reports and interviews that explore changing expectations and norms at every stage of the journalism supply chain.

"N2T" is edited by veteran journalist Alexander Zaitchik, and we count a number of notable media reporters among our growing roster of writers. We actively recruit new contributors from Study Hall, an official Pressland partner and the nation’s fastest-growing network of writers and editors.

As News-to-Table's publisher, Pressland is committed to: paying above-market rates, paying our writers promptly and without hassle, and preserving their intellectual property rights. In September, reporting by N2T contributors Benjamin Powers and Tyler Kingkade (writing for The Daily Dot) was instrumental in LinkedIn's decision to expand freelancer access to their "LinkedIn for Journalists" upgrade program.
