  • Episode 16-Community Journalism

    1 AUG 2021 · In this Restore KC, we'll be talking about Community Journalism and its importance to the overall health and vitality of Kansas City's neighborhoods. Since the year 2,000, over 250 small, locally owned newsrooms have shuttered their operations, leaving communities without a locally centered news source that covers micro-local news such as church fish frys, local school board activity or boy scout chili dinners. Larger news outlets traditionally don't or won't cover those events because they're more about "if it bleeds, it leads," ratings centered news. The Northeast News is an award winning, Community Journalism outlet that has served Kansas City's Historic Northeast community since 1932.
