A new report from Pew Research Center, "Journalism Partnerships, A New Era of Interest," provides short case studies of five efforts by local news organizations to collaborate with other news organizations.
As traditional news organizations tighten their belts and emerging
news start ups embrace lean operations, pooling resources is becoming
more appealing even among former competitors.
The report looks at cases where news organizations joined forces to
co-produce or share news coverage, where a small start up gained
exposure by sharing stories with a larger traditional news partner, as
well as two partnerships that helped local public broadcast outlets
develop local news muscle.
