Local Journalism
Feb 2nd, 2017, 9:50am
Matthew Barraclough, Editor, BBC Journalism Working Group, has posted his blog discussing the new partnership with 'the local news sector'.

His blog may be found here.

The "Local Democracy Reporting Service"..

"The Service will be funded by us, but the staff won’t be BBC employees. It will be a network of reporters employed by other news organisations, who will report on local authorities, filing their copy and additional multimedia into a central system which will then be distributed simultaneously to all local partners."

The BBC Media Centre announcement is here.

"Unique and ambitious partnership plans including the creation of 150 local democracy reporters, which were outlined in joint proposals by the BBC and the News Media Association last May, have now been given the go ahead for roll out across the country."
