LION Summit

Foundation support for local journalism

11:30 a.m. — 12:15 p.m., Film Row Cinema

What are the major foundations that support journalism doing to strengthen the local news ecosystem? What do they need or want to see from local publishers? Has their approach or priorities changed in this era of "fake news" and mistrust in the media? A panel discussion with Karen Rundlet of the Knight Foundation, Teresa Gorman of the Democracy Fund, and Molly de Aguiar of the News Integrity Initiative, moderated by Jan Schaffer of J Lab.
