MEET OUR LISTENING POST COLLECTIVE MEMBERS

The Listening Post Collective is a vibrant and collaborative network of partners across the US. The Listening Post team focuses on two things.

Supporting our members

We help establish projects and mentor local media working in communities that have news and information gaps. We provide funding, help conduct local research, and offer project support and coaching to local actors who seek to expand their community’s voice in media and make sure residents are better informed.

Sharing and learning

Through our playbook, newsletters and our toolkit, we share our strategies with a community of reporting outlets, journalism schools, and engaged journalism projects around the US. We also seek to learn from that same cohort, and collaboratively explore sustainability, reach, representation, and impact of local journalism.

Location

Fresno, CA

Focus

The Listening Post Collective conducted an information ecosystem assessment in South Fresno and nearby rural communities between January and July 2019. Our aim was to take stock of how residents get and share news; listen to their priorities and understand how coverage of those issues impacts their ability to thrive. We also wanted to learn from grassroots news-sharing projects that fill information gaps, despite a lack of resources and formal training.


This report is based on more than 60 interviews with community leaders and media makers, eight community listening sessions and nearly 600 surveys with residents. Four community liaisons attended job fairs, swapmeets, schools, church services, grocery stores and more to do this listening.


As a result of this work, the Listening Post Collective is gathering community ideas on how residents’ feedback might shape existing or new community media/info work in Fresno and surrounding areas. We're also launching a fund to support these ideas. See more information here.
