Local News Summit

Sunday, January 29, 2023

From January 27-29, 2023, The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands partnered with The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Chalkbeat to host The Summit for Local News. Recognizing the catastrophic effects that the rapid decline of local news has had on communities across the country, a broad and diverse cross-section of local news leaders, journalists, supporters, and readers have been contributing their perspectives over the past year to The Roadmap for Local News: An Emergent Approach to Meeting Civic Information Needs. The Roadmap, which was officially published on February 2, 2023, is aimed at identifying solutions to the local news crisis.
