Strengthening Local Journalism, Round Two

Targeting the South and Northwest

This Request for Proposals seeks proposals from groups of 3-6 stations located in the South and Northwest willing to form Local Journalism Centers that will result in an elevated quality and quantity of journalism designed to better serve their collective audience. The Local Journalism Centers should create compelling content and community engagement opportunities that include audio, video, text, photos, blogs, social networking, dynamic syndication, and mobile applications. Proposals should address all the elements that will be needed to create a successful Local Journalism Center, including personnel, training, infrastructure, community engagement, and research, and should describe the nature of the broadcast, online and other forms of content that will be produced.
