For the past three years, INN and IRE have worked together to create a program specifically tailored to the needs and issues facing nonprofit investigative newsrooms during the annual IRE conference. This year, on Thursday, June 20, 2013 in San Antonio, TX, we will offer a day filled with leaders in the field, workshops, and idea sharing designed to invigorate nonprofit news veterans and interested newbies alike.
The Investigative News Network now comprises 82 nonprofit newsrooms across North America: INN is pleased to welcome Mother Jones, the Raleigh Public Record, the Ochberg Society for Trauma Journalism and Hidden City Philadelphia.
Congratulations to the INN members honored by the 2013 Investigative Reporters & Editors Awards. The annual IRE Awards, established in 1979, “recognize outstanding investigative work and help identify the techniques and resources used to complete each story.”
INN thanks EEJF for its ongoing support of nonprofit journalism. EEJF's mission is to invest in the future of journalism by building the ethics, skills and opportunities needed to advance principled, probing news and information.
The network is welcoming four new, fiscally-sponsored members: the Global Center for Investigative Journalism, the Southern Investigative Reporting Foundation, the Investigative Post and the Ohio Center for Investigative Reporting.
The Open Society Foundations (OSF) has awarded $300,000 over two years to the Investigative News Network to provide funds to assist start-up member organizations in network’s technology and insurance initiatives.
As the Director of Technology, Adam is responsible for the planning, implementation and measurement of INN’s technology initiatives, including Project Largo, INN’s open-source WordPress content publishing system built specifically to support the needs of long-form news publishers.
“In joining INN, we hope to make our journalism, our data and our training more widely available,” said Sunlight’s Managing Editor Kathy Kiely. “We believe that non-profits are a crucial part of the information ecosystem at a time when the economic models for traditional journalism are collapsing.”
