EPISODE 24: LOCAL JOURNALISM IN LOCAL HANDS
In a first-of-its-kind deal, a local nonprofit collaborated with partners to purchase 24 community newspapers and websites. They valued local ownership — understanding that news and journalism that kept local residents informed was critical to the health of local communities and democracy. On Episode 24 of “Informed and Engaged,” we’ll unpack how the deal was done, what happens when you’re a new newsroom owner, and what the opportunities might be for other community publishers across the country.
