Part of a Continuing Series
*Be THE Community Forum is the essence of Relevance. Community newspapers and local news media, think here:
Execute the strategy in three parts, using Forum or town-hall formats:
Part 1: Explain the mission of your news organization and its reporting. Collect suggestions and advice on how to strengthen community connections. Elaborate. Ask. Listen.
Part 2: Deepen the news literacy of your community. Confront misinformation. By fostering more knowledgeable consumers, attract a growing audience with trusted journalism. Expose. Correct. Encourage.
Part 3: Examine community problems and explore game-changing solutions. Enlighten democracy by demonstrating the importance of the local news media as a moderator of civil, civic discourse. Welcome. Preside. Respect.
*Community Forum = Relevance.
