NPR Gets $3 Million Grant For Hyper-Local News Initiative04 Oct 2009
The new funding will allow a pilot group of a dozen NPR stations with the resources to provide in-depth, hyper-local news on a topic that is most relevant to the community where the station is located. The grants also allow the stations to hire new “journalist bloggers,” who will focus exclusively on reporting and aggregating news about a topic relevant to that city. The pilot radio and TV stations have not been chosen yet.
Interesting, I wonder which cities will be chosen.
