The Assembly

The Assembly is a digital-first magazine publishing deep reporting on power and place in North Carolina. We launched in 2021 with a focus on interesting and nonpartisan journalism about our state. We tell big stories, and give our journalists space to be ambitious. Our reporting aims to be narrative, informative and revelatory. This year, we started building regional teams and partners to bring that same level of reporting to the city level.

On our best days, we elevate voices that may not otherwise be heard.

We look for immediacy and depth and impact every day, and we demand much of ourselves because our community expects first-rate journalism.

Vermont Public/VTDigger

VPR knits Vermonters together with its statewide network, as well as serving “Vermontophiles” in surrounding states, Canada and around the world. We provide a variety of local and NPR and other programming, including two daily news programs, “Morning Edition,” and “All Things Considered,” a daily talk show “Vermont Edition” and our people-powered “Brave Little State” project. Our reporters generate dozens of newscast items and in-depth stories a week. And we maintain a robust website. We are a respected institution in our state, and recognized for innovation in serving our mostly-rural audience. As Vermont’s daily newspapers and commercial broadcasters are struggling and reducing staff, VPR is determined to work with our partners to preserve great reporting in all parts of our state.

The Community Voice

The Community Voice is a bi-weekly, state-wide publication that targets Kansas' African-American community. The publication was founded in 1993, and purchased by the Gooch family in 1996. The publication was originally a monthly, and has been bi-weekly for almost two decades. Until 2015, our coverage area was predominately the Wichita community, but we've expanded into the Kansas City market, focusing heavily on the Kansas side of the metropolitan area. Again, in response to a request to expand, we formally expanded our coverage in 2018 to include the Missouri side of the Kansas City metropolitan area.
