MORGAN HILL, Calif., Dec. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Life Media Group, a Silicon Valley-based company, aims to leverage media in groundbreaking ways to improve the quality of life for all Americans by transforming society, culture, economics and politics.
Founded in January 2013, Life Media Group publishes hyper-local newspapers Morgan Hill Life and Gilroy Life with the goal of leveraging media technology to provide readers with the information they need to enjoy a better quality of life. As it enters 2024, it seeks to follow its original dream of building a human-benefit company using media to connect people through the power of storytelling.
Among its goals, the company aims to build an advanced system that improves:
- Local news coverage focusing on stories that truly impact day-to-day life
- Advertising and marketing tools helping businesses and nonprofits expand their reach
- Education programs that empower youth to build “media savvy” and communication skills
- Community connections by promoting digital storytelling through the arts/entertainment
“We seek to transform community media to focus on what matters most for improving life locally,” said Life Media Group co-founder Marty Cheek. “Our vision is to interconnect neighborhoods through innovative coverage and groundbreaking digital engagement.”
To raise $10 million in funds for the first phase of this ambitious endeavor, Cheek has authored two books outlining the Vision-2020 movement to harness media for the betterment of the world. In Vision-2020: Be a Hero for Humanity, he challenges Americans to embrace pragmatic media solutions to transform society, politics, economics and culture in order to realize enduring global peace by Christmas Day 2040. Blending philosophical wisdom with policy insights, he charts a course toward a more just and unified civilization.
The companion science-fiction book Humanity: A Vision-2020 Novel shows readers we can improve society during the next two decades by using technology prudently. Both books are available on Amazon and all royalty money goes to the Vision-2020 campaign
“We have seen how media can be weaponized to divide us and inflame conflict, but it also has tremendous power to bring out humanity’s best qualities,” Cheek said. “Our goal is to pioneer innovative uses of news, marketing, education, and the arts/entertainment to help Americans and all other people recognize their common hopes and values, defusing tensions that lead to violence.”
