Mapping the Midwest’s news landscape

Congratulations to The Pivot Fund — the team just announced an expansion of its media landscape analyses to the Great Lakes states with new support from Press Forward members The Joyce Foundation and McKnight Foundation. The research aims to identify news outlets that are trusted by people of color, but that otherwise would not have been considered by the philanthropic organizations looking to boost local news. The findings will inform Press Forward’s local news strategy in the region, starting with Minnesota. 

As a fiscal sponsor, ONA has been a steadfast partner in The Pivot Fund’s work since its launch. We look forward to continuing the partnership this year and amplifying the team’s mission as their work expands.
