Featured Media

To expand in-depth and explanatory coverage on an online news site called Crosscut.com

To provide more context about local issues, the Seattle news site Crosscut.com will launch two new features. The Explainer will describe the complex issues of the day in simple language. And Spotlight Projects will produce comprehensive coverage of a hot topic. An experienced reporter will be hired to lead the coverage, attending meetings and curating and posting background material on the site. In addition, the site will hire a community editor to include the viewpoints of ethnic, youth and other underrepresented communities.
