News Innovation: Cross-Platform Impact

This 18-month project advances new ways for public media to collaborate around journalism. The station partners -- Oregon Public Broadcasting/Portland, OR; ideastream/Cleveland, OH; and WXXI/Rochester, NY -- are developing new techniques and best practices for joint licensees to have the greatest impact with topic-based enterprise journalism by leveraging all platforms to serve their communities. Each station partner is producing three local "Big Footprint" projects and are collaborating to produce one Big Footprint on the same topic. The stations are testing, piloting and documenting "Big Footprint Best Practices" for replication and adoption by all public media organizations, including radio and TV stations working on their own or in partnership.
