Happy Birthday, StateImpact!
Can you believe it’s been a year? And what a first year it has been!
With three state sites launched, StateImpact was officially announced through social media and traditional press on July 11, 2011. Now in eight states, we’re building an impressive following by telling explanatory, data-driven stories focused on how state issues and policy affect people’s lives.
We’ve won numerous local, regional and even national journalism awards – amazing for a new project! Our broadcast stories are being heard on public radio stations across our states, our digital stories and interactives are being shared on Twitter and Facebook, and our local stories are being heard – and recognized – on NPR shows. “StateImpact, I’ve heard of that,” is a response we’re all hearing more and more! Feels good, doesn’t it?
