Despite the fact that news consumption has risen to unprecedented levels during the pandemic, more than 50 local newsrooms across the country have closed their doors. But even in this period of uncertainty, a handful of news startups launched anyway. Why? Because journalism. What are they most proud of? What would they have done differently? And who invested in these outlets? Hear from Stephen Henderson of Bridge Detroit and Tasneem Raja of Oaklandside.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists and news consumers yearning for hope for journalism amid the chaos of 2020
