Featured Media

To produce an investigative report on gas- and oil-well drilling, The Raymond John Wean Foundation will help enable a new operating partnership between the NewsOutlet.org and a local National Public Radio affiliate. 

The NewsOutlet.org, a previous Knight Community Information Challenge winner, started at Youngstown State University and expanded to the University of Akron and Kent State. The site has helped the universities strengthen their investigative-reporting and video-storytelling expertise.

Media partners benefit from its content, with more than 100 story packages produced across a variety of platforms. In addition to the report on gas- and oil-well drilling, the NewsOutlet.org will report on other investigative and enterprise stories for media partners across Ohio.
