All day
Knight-Lenfest Newsroom Initiative meeting
October 16, 2018 (All day) to October 18, 2018 (All day)
Carroll Hall

Ten media organizations have been selected to learn how to engage audiences and create sustainable revenue streams as part of the year-long UNC Knight-Lenfest Newsroom Initiative starting in April 2018 and ending in April 2019.

The Knight-Lenfest Newsroom Initiative, which has grown from the Table Stakes program for major metro newspapers, has created partnerships among the UNC Center for Innovation & Sustainability in Local Media, the American Press Institute and the Poynter Institute to add to the depth and impact of the effort. The program, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Lenfest Institute for Journalism, has brought together 39 newsrooms from Houston to the Bay Area to Philadelphia to Alaska.

The participating organizations exist on a variety of platforms — radio, broadcast, newspaper, and digital — with teams of varying sizes, but they all face similar challenges in this disruptive digital age. They come from North Carolina, Virginia, Arkansas, South Carolina and Georgia.
