NewsCollege was launched in February 2006 by Gregg McLachlan, an award-winning columnist, newspaper editor and journalist with 20-plus years experience in both weekly and daily newspapers. Today, he works as a communications consultant and media coach.

From 2003 to 2006 he published the newsroom newsletter The Write Way, circulated to media/journalists/colleges in Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Malaysia, Europe, South Africa and South America. Many tipsheets from that newsletter can now be found at various journalism sites on the Internet. He has conducted training workshops at the Canadian Association of Journalists Super Conference and Ryerson University's Wordstock journalism conferences attended by journalism students, media and public relations professionals.

The Write Way has evolved to become NewsCollege, an online educational resource with an emphasis on practical tips.
