Exploring Community Journalism Models

Community radio is examined as part of a new report.

Project South Thursday published a report called “Out of Struggle: Strengthening and Expanding Movement Journalism in the U.S. South,” which explores how journalism can meet the information needs of communities under attack in an increasingly dangerous political environment.
