Five upstate New York NPR stations, one multi-media newsroom.
In June 2014, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) awarded WBFO, WXXI Rochester, WSKG Binghamton, WRVO Oswego/Syracuse, and WMHT Schenectady/Albany a two-year, $375,000 grant to allow the five stations to create a single multi-media regional newsroom, known as Upstate Insight.
Upstate Insight is an innovative model for covering news across a large geographic area. Through increased collaboration on enterprise reporting, an emphasis on multi-reporter stories and coordinated deployment of reporters around significant stories, Upstate Insight provides more comprehensive coverage to communities across upstate New York. The five stations have developed a news data capability and adopted content sharing and communications systems to support connectivity between organizations.
CPB’s Senior Vice President, Radio, Bruce Theriault said, “The evolving media environment has opened doors to a host of collaborative opportunities across public media. We’re now seeing stations develop greater journalism capacity through partnerships, resource sharing and multi-platform production. Upstate Insight will follow this model and will provide the high-quality news and information needed by their communities.”
Upstate Insight incorporates stories from the Innovation Trail Local Journalism Center as well as resources in the Southern Tier, Central and Western New York and the Capitol District, including the Capitol Bureau in Albany, NY. An executive editor coordinates – in collaboration with reporters and news directors at each station – the production of news stories that focus on issues relevant to Upstate New Yorkers, including education, health, energy and the environment.
Upstate Insight is part of a CPB initiative to support multi-station alliances with the goal of increasing public media’s capacity to produce relevant, in-depth, multi-platform stories that inform and engage our communities.
