Project Blog: Carolina Public Press

Carolina Public Press is the North Carolina’s first online-only nonprofit news site dedicated to in-depth, instigative and independent journalism. Through a network of content-sharing, social media, newsletters and events, Newsome and her team hope to bring light to a region of western North Carolina where news is often overlooked due to newsroom layoffs and downsizing.

Carolina Public Press partners with all media in the state

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

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 accross the state, making quality, local journalism avaliable to more and more Carolinians. Read about what Carolina Public Press is accomplishing in the J-Lab report News Chops: Beefing up the Journalism in Local Public Broadcasting.
