We have used user data (questionnaires and interviews) to create strategies designed to demonstrate the credibility and trustworthiness of journalism. We will have sample strategies to share within a couple of weeks.
In this next phase of the project, we will now select a diverse group of newsrooms (based on media type, size and geography) that are willing to commit to helping us experiment. Those newsrooms will each select strategies that are a good fit for them. They will then test those strategies in fall 2017 and log the results, learning from the project managers and from each other about what's working and what's not.
Applications will begin being reviewed in mid-August, on a rolling basis. Questions can be sent to Joy Mayer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
