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.

Focus

NOISE, shorthand for North Omaha Information Support Everyone, is a community-led news network is committed to strengthening information creation and distribution in North Omaha. Dawaune Lamont Hayes, founder and director of NOISE, is a North Omaha native and 2016 journalism graduate of Creighton University. Having worked and lived in the community, Hayes saw first-hand the negative impact of limited news flow and deep coverage of issues important to residents. This disparity prompted him to put his abilities to use in North Omaha, partnering with local outlets The Reader, The Omaha Star, Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center and Mind and Soul 101.3 FM to develop a grassroots news network specific to the community.

Membership details

During the summer of 2017 Internews’ Listening Post Collective, with support from the Omaha based Weitz Family Foundation, conducted an Information Ecosystem Assessment in North Omaha, Nebraska. Listening Post staff met with media workers, community leaders and residents about how information is created and shared in the area, how local media portrays the neighborhood, and the information needs of North Omaha residents. This assessment identified information gaps and opportunities in the community, and through a request for proposals, led to the creation of NOISE. The Listening Post Collective is continuing to advise the program as NOISE through 2019.
