Local Fix: Send us your good ideas and questions


Welcome to the Local Fix. Each week we look at key debates in journalism sustainability and community engagement through the lens of local news.

Last week we gave you vacation recommendations and this week we are taking a vacation ourselves. We’ll be back with tons of great links and useful lessons next week. 

Thanks for all the work you do everyday to serve your communities, tell powerful stories, and shine a spotlight on critical local issues. We are all better for the work you do. 

We may be on vacation but our inbox is always open, and we’d love to hear from you. Hit reply and let us know about the exciting things you are working on or questions you are grappling with in your newsroom.  We’ll use your input to develop future sections of the Local Fix. 

Have a good weekend,

Josh and Teresa
