Since the spring, Localore's teams of independent, station-based, and community producers have been engaged in an ambitious experiment blending media-technology, journalism, and storytelling. Their radio and television station partners span regions across the country—from rural outposts, to coastal urban matrices, to the open plains of mid-America. These collaborations are giving rise to a new form we call "full spectrum public media." Watch the video above to sample their work at the initiative's halfway mark—and see hints of more to come.
Involving new public media audiences via broadcast, digital and street media, Localore productions are energizing participants and garnering notice. See recent pieces in Forbes, The Guardian, HuffPo, Transom and elsewhere to get a bead on what our makers are discovering.
