The local news vanishing act: What Gateway Cities are doing to fix it

Gateways Episode 47

This week on Gateways, we look at the state of local journalism in Massachusetts. Bruce Mohl, editor of CommonWealth, joins to talk about the struggle many local news outlets face, calling this era of reporting a “low point,” and urging private citizens and lawmakers alike to recognize the severity of the situation.



Then we talk with two New Bedford residents, Colleen Dawicki and Jacob Miller, who give firsthand accounts of the diminishing news presence in their community. Together they describe how other like-minded folks are coming together to find solutions for New Bedford.
