Local Fix: Goodbye 2018!


As 2018 comes to a close, we are profoundly grateful for journalists and newsroom staff around the country whose work has been a lifeline for communities, revealed corruption and lifted up the stories of local people day after day.

We recognize that many of you have done all of this in the face of deep economic challenges, political attacks, ongoing harassment and even violence. When we thought about how to end the year, we thought the best way to recognize all the important work that has happened would be to link to as much of it as we could. So for the last Local Fix of the year we are sharing a list of lists. Did we miss one? Tweet it to @thelocalnewslab.

If you find something new, or something you love, in the links below take a moment to thank the people behind it. Hold each other up as we enter 2019. The world is stronger thanks to your work and we are all stronger together.

We’ll be back January 11. Until then, have a great holiday,


Josh and Teresa
