Public Insight Journalism
Public Insight Journalism engages public radio listeners to help provide the full story-and to ensure that the right stories are being covered. For example, Minnesota Public Radio has a network of more than 15,000 people who are actively sharing their knowledge. That network has already informed more than 150 reports on topics as diverse as global warming and consumer-driven health care.
