Crisis in Baltimore: WEAA
This grant supported and enhanced WEAA-FM's ongoing coverage following riots and other unrest that occurred in the wake of the death of a man in the custody of Baltimore police and the subsequent charges against six officers. WEAA worked to ensure public media remains a trusted source of information in the Baltimore community and beyond. This grant defrayed direct costs for contract reporters and a digital producer who created enhanced news and public affairs coverage over six months. The WEAA staff also provided original content and support to national program producers in and around Baltimore. WEAA coordinated coverage with WYPR.
