Syracuse Speaks-Local Journalism in CNY
There’s a lot happening in the city of Syracuse and the Central New York region: The Interstate 81 viaduct project, continued recovery from COVID-19, and Mayor Ben Walsh’s Syracuse Surge initiative, just to name a few. And as reporters covering this community and writing the stores that help inform your day to day, it’s important we tell the stories with truth, accountability and equity.
For this episode of Syracuse Speaks, we talk to newsroom leaders and innovators about local journalism in Central New York. What is working? What needs to change? How can we better cover our community?
Joining us for this discussion:
- Julie McMahon, Editor-in-Chief of the soon-to-be-launched Central Current
- Ashley Kang, Director of The Stand
- Camalot Todd, mental health reporter for Spectrum Networks and leader of the Syracuse Journalism Lab
