The Local Reporter is now a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News, the broadest network of independent investigative and public service newsrooms in the country.
INN began in 2009 and now has more than 250-plus member newsrooms across the country. Each of those members must prove it is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to editorial independence and transparency.
The Local Reporter, which is published by Friends of Local Journalism, a nonprofit based in Chapel Hill, also is a member of LION, the association of Local Independent Online News publishers. It is the nation’s only group dedicated solely to local news.
