As Georgia becomes more and more diverse, local news has never been more important. It can counter disinformation, boost civic participation, build trust, and connect people to their communities. Yet Georgia’s local news landscape is unstable, incomplete, and unequal. Legacy media is struggling with both business challenges and trust issues.
This report analyzes both the challenges and the solutions, and recommends listening to the innovators who are showing it's possible to meet the information needs of diverse communities—and citizens in a democracy.
Our work on this project was completed in partnership with Georgia News Collaborative. You can download their full report, which includes our report and presentation, via the button below.
