Amplify News Project

The Amplify News Project is a pilot program designed to expand the reach and impact of news coverage by INN’s members in the Midwest. Generously funded by grants from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and The Joyce Foundation, Amplify is testing how a shared collaboration and distribution hub can help grassroots newsrooms at the local and regional level collaborate and leverage today’s complex digital distribution channels to bring their news reporting to more people.

Launched in July 2017, Amplify involves more than 20 nonprofit news organizations. It is directed by Sherry Skalko and is based in Chicago at host partners The Chicago Reporter and Public Narrative.
