Your Local Newsdesk presentation

Newsdesk.org has received $25K from Ethics & Excellence in Journalism to develop a revenue-earning syndicated service providing public-interest journalism to underbudgeted commercial newsrooms. Content would be developed by a national network of independent but affiliated YOUR LOCAL NEWSDESK bureaus and fellowships. The bureaus will focus on important but overlooked news; fund themselves through earned income as well as individual donors and philanthropy; and develop extremely cost-efficient, peer-run newsrooms that are linked in a cross-promotional affiliate network.
