To identify information gaps in five local communities, Berks County Community Foundation will use Knight Foundation’s Community Information Toolkit to determine what kind of information residents need but aren’t getting through the online news site, bctv.org, and other media outlets.
A previous Knight Community Information Challenge winner, bctv.org is an important source for professionally reported stories and a voice for local residents. However, it is unclear how much of that news is being received in Berks County’s communities. Students from nearby Alvernia University will be trained to produce reports on issues that need further exploring.
