What Works In Community News: with Journalism Professor & Author Dan Kennedy
Thursday, Jan. 11, 7PM – Virtual
Local news is essential to democracy. Meaningful participation in civic life is impossible without it. However, local news is in crisis. According to one widely cited study, some 2,500 newspapers have closed over the last generation. Kennedy, and his co-author Ellen Clegg, cut through the pessimism surrounding this issue in their new book, What Works in Community News: Media Startups, News Deserts, and the Future of the Fourth Estate, showing readers that new, innovative journalism models are popping up across the country to fill news deserts and empower communities.
