IN PRINT — Groundbreaking civic media initiatives

In our daily newspaper...

Through a partnership with The Daily Progress, the first of its kind in the nation, Charlottesville Tomorrow’s reporting is a regular feature in the pages of the local newspaper of record.  Since 2009 over 1,400 news stories have been published in the newspaper and today Charlottesville Tomorrow produces more than 50 percent of the newspaper's content related to growth, development, and local politics.

"The partnership is clearly benefiting our readers, who are getting more public affairs reporting at a time when most news organizations are pulling back. The Daily Progress is a better, more consistent newspaper because of this partnership."

McGregor McCance, Daily Progress Managing Editor (2005-2012)
