Abstract

In March 2019, reporters and editors from a wide range of Pacific Northwest media organizations gathered in Portland, Oregon, to discuss the state of local journalism in the Pacific Northwest.

Splitting into three groups, each cohort focused on a particular element of this landscape: business and revenue models, engaged journalism and changing journalistic practice. They were joined by faculty, graduate and undergraduate students from the School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) at the University of Oregon.

Participants in each conversation discussed challenges, potential solutions, and shared ideas about their experiences. This is the first in a series of reports stemming from that day. It summarizes the key ideas and case studies shared by the group which focused on changing journalistic practice.

Keywords: media, journalism, business models, digital journalism, community engagement, journalistic practice
