RJI announces Local News Challenge to help local newsrooms tackle technology challenges

The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute’s innovation team is looking to tackle current technology-related challenges that local newsrooms are coping with but are unable to solve themselves.

Knowing that local newsrooms don’t have all the resources of large legacy newsrooms has prompted RJI to launch the Local News Challenge to try to make local news staffs’ jobs easier.

“We want to hear anything and everything that newsrooms are struggling with — no idea is too small or too big,” says Kat Duncan, RJI’s interim director of innovation. “We hope to be able to create some solutions so newsrooms can focus more on serving their communities and less on the technological hiccups that can often take time, resources and manpower away from the journalism itself.”

Please fill out this form and let us know what problems RJI can help you solve.
