Press Forward: Opportunities for Local Public Media Organizations

Robust local news is a public good essential for the well-being of our communities and the civic health of a thriving democracy. That’s the premise behind the Press Forward donor collaborative, which is raising and deploying new resources for local news across the country. But what does this mean for local public media organizations, which collectively employ over 4,400 local reporters nationwide?

Join Dale R. Anglin (Director at Press Forward), Jim Brady (VP/Journalism at Knight Foundation), and Silvia Rivera (Director, Local News at MacArthur Foundation) in conversation with Tim Isgitt (CEO of Public Media Company) to discuss this topic and answer your questions.

For decades, public media organizations have served their communities’ informational and cultural needs, and many are eager to do more in this time of need. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about Press Forward’s plans and objectives, how you can engage stakeholders and foster local collaborations, and how to approach your community’s funding requests.
