THE BUSINESS CHALLENGE
NewsWorks.org is the online home of WHYY News. NewsWorks was formed with two principal goals: 1) to provide regional news coverage, focusing on solutions and heroes in addition to problems and scandals, and 2) to be a participatory site powered by readers’ concerns, questions, insights and stories.
NewsWorks received a grant from the Knight Foundation to partner with several consultants and agencies with different approaches and competencies to explore new ways to achieve their goals. We were selected as one of these partners to help research and cast the vision for a new model for the future of online public media. I’m not just a technology geek, I’m also a proud Philadelphian as well as a news and NPR addict, so I was pretty stoked to work with WHYY.
