Rural Media (U.S. newsrooms)

The Rural Cohort is designed to help rural-serving media (from any medium) incorporate solutions journalism into regular practice. Participating newsrooms receive professional development from the Solutions Journalism Network and support from each other. Over the course of seven months, news teams learn the basics of solutions journalism, and how to find meaningful solutions journalism stories in county board meetings, press releases, and the beat coverage they're already doing. The cohort supports newsrooms in learning how to evaluate story ideas, spot solutions opportunities and effectively execute on solutions stories while meeting tight deadlines.
