Expanding Journalism for Boston and the Nation
$7m raised of $10m goal
Since 2000, newsrooms across the country have lost nearly a quarter of their workforce, a drastic reduction in writers and reporters that has dramatically altered local journalism, leaving many communities without a local news source.
WBUR has become a primary news source for hundreds of thousands in our community.
To fulfill this role and responsibility, we must enrich our coverage of the region. We will deepen our reporting in numerous areas and create multimedia teams to share news and information in new and expanded ways.
We must also seek out new voices and talent to support the next generation of journalists and ensure our reporting captures stories and perspectives from our ever-evolving community.
