The 18 westernmost counties North Carolina had no local news radio, paper, or even website to turn to until Carolina Public Press launched. Now, the non-profit news site is reporting on stories that matter from child poverty to local elections. But Carolina Public Press is not just sharing investigations with their audience. The news outlet shares stories with public broadcasters across the state, making quality, local journalism available to more and more Carolinians.
