    10 public radio stations across the U.S. are teaming up to report on gun violence in a national collaboration called Guns and America that will span two years starting this summer, D.C.-based public radio station WAMU announced .

    The project will focus its efforts on sustained, deep coverage on solutions to gun violence in America and highlighting underreported perspectives, and is supported by a $5.3 million dollar grant from an Atlanta-based private family foundation, The Kendeda Fund. WAMU will devote a five-person production team to the collaboration. The initiative will bring on 10 reporting fellows, who will each be embedded within the participating public radio stations.

    (The partner stations are: WAMU in Washington; Boise State Public Radio in Idaho; KCUR in Kansas City; KERA in Dallas; KUNC in Greeley, Colorado; OPB in Portland, Oregon; WABE in Atlanta; WCPN ideastream in Cleveland; WNPR in Hartford; and WUNC in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.) The WAMU-led collaboration will be adding to the corpus of reporting on gun violence from other initiatives like news site .

    From WAMU’s announcement:

    The national collaborative will report for two years on the many ways that firearms are intertwined in American life, from the cultural significance of hunting and sport shooting, to the role guns play in suicide, homicide, mass shootings and beyond. The inaugural cohort of Audion Fellows will increase the capacity for in-depth reporting and infuse public media newsrooms across the country with digital and multimedia skills. Reporters at the ten stations will begin filing their first stories in June 2018.

    Beyond the announced two-year Guns & America reporting collaborative, the Audion Fellowship is expected to be an ongoing program, poised to tackle future endeavors on topics of national interest and critical importance.

    on how to apply to the Audion Fellowship. All the reporting from this initiative can also be found starting in June of 2018.

    Most bad freelance pitches are bad for the same few reasons. But they’re often salvageable with a little tweaking.
    If you’re poor in the UK you get less, worse news — especially online, new research suggests
    Poorer people are less likely to go straight to a news site, and the researchers found no online news brand that was read by significantly more poorer people than wealthier people.
