Meet Our Team

Wendy Card

EditorWendy Card, founded New Bern Now during the great recession in April 2009. She saw the need and created a one-stop, information shop to help people find out what’s happening in New Bern and surrounding communities.

The local news landscape has changed over the years and our previous business model is no longer sustainable.

In 2023, we decided to focus on producing in-depth and investigative journalism.

Wendy retired as a Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman in 2007. 


Laura Johnson Executive Advisor has dedicated countless hours to New Bern Now since 2009.
