News Organizations


Report for America harnesses the tremendous creativity and innovation that has sprung up in communities in the last decade. Host newsrooms include nonprofits and newspapers, public radio stations and digital-only sites. Some organizations have joined together to sponsor a RFA corps member. The one essential requirement: Local news organizations must use RFA members to help with crucially under-covered communities or topics.

Once embedded in the host organization, the corps member report to the editor of the host organization. The first RFA newsrooms are: West Virginia Public BroadcastingLexington Herald-Leader and Charleston Gazette-Mail.  

Nine more newsrooms have recently been announced.
