Is nonprofit news sustainable? Can the model serve the full civic information needs of citizens, both in the Bay Area and in regions with little local wealth and sparse populations? Join us on Thursday, February 8 at 7:00pm PST, for an engaging panel discussion on “The Death and Rebirth of Local News” hosted by the College Prepatory School. The panel will explore the demise of the majority of the Bay Area’s local newspapers, the new nonprofit newsrooms that have launched in recent years and the critical role local news plays in a healthy democracy. Can nonprofit news sites deliver local and regional news in a way that is relevant to the TikTok generation?
The panelists include:
- Martin G. Reynolds, Maynard Institute co-executive director
- Katherine Ann Rowlands, Bay City News publisher and LocalNewsMatters.org founder
- Madeleine Bair, El Tímpano founder
- Geoffrey King, Open Vallejo founder and executive editor
