Local Fix: We’re Listening to You
Welcome to the Local Fix. Each week we look at key debates in journalism sustainability and community engagement through the lens of local news. But first, we always begin with one good idea…
One Good Idea: Listen
We often share readings and tips on listening here in the Fix. But we thought we’d spend this week reminding you that we’re listening, too. One of the best things about the newsletter is hearing feedback and sparking conversations about the topics we all care about. So, as always, if you ever have a project you’re excited about, a question you want answered, a topic to highlight, or feedback for us, send it our way by replying to this email firstname.lastname@example.org, or saying hi on Twitter @TheLocalNewsLab.
This week, we took a look back and found some of the recent posts and stories we wouldn’t have gotten to without your help.
