Hey, the folks at American Public Media are doing some really good new stuff:
American Public Media's Center for Innovation in Journalism is spreading a new model that turns newsrooms and the audience into partners. Public Insight Journalism means: Stories that matter because they come from those living the news; Reporters relying on sources from unheard-from communities (poor, immigrant, youth); and News that empowers people by engaging them. Currently, 52,000 people have agreed to share their knowledge and insight to make our reporting deeper and more relevant, with 2,000 people signing up every moth to join our citizen network. PIJ helps to develop public partnerships to bring stories and voices that would not otherwise be covered in the news.
