The Local News Data Hub is committed to i) shoring up local journalism by supplying newsrooms with data-driven stories ii) training student data journalists and iii) providing support for/collaborating with journalists and news outlets on data-based projects. After identifying a dataset relevant to multiple communities, the Data Hub team does the necessary reporting to produce a story template that is then populated with data for individual cities and towns. These local stories are available to all local media via the LNDH website. Many are also shared with the Canadian Press wire service for distribution to CP clients across the country. Read more HERE.
