Report for America is proud to announce its 2019 corps.

We’re placing 61 extraordinary journalists in these 50 newsrooms spanning 30 states and Puerto Rico.  The news organizations include Pulitzer Prize winning newspapers, public radio stations, digital-first non profit news organizations, the Associated Press, weekly papers, and a local TV station.

These journalists were selected from more than one thousand applications that were reviewed by our amazing team of judges. The 2019 corps members will start in June.

The crisis in journalism has become a crisis for our democracy.

We are calling on a new generation of journalists to serve in community news organizations across the country.

It is time to Report for America.

Join the Movement


RFA corps members report in local newsrooms across America, including newspaper, radio, TV and digital outlets. They report on under-covered issues and communities.


RFA newsrooms host between one and five reporters for a year at a time, covering stories and beats, important to their community and that would otherwise go uncovered.
