What We Do

Since 1996, Public News Service has pioneered a model of member-supported journalism to engage, educate and advocate for the public interest. By combining legacy and new media, we reach audiences across geographic and political divides.

Currently, tens of thousands of media outlets receive our content and more than 6,000 nationally are regularly using our stories.

Our members are organizations – NGOs, Foundations and Social Enterprises – and individuals that help “fund a beat,” covering critical issues that receive too little coverage, lifting up often marginalized voices and making greater journalistic breadth available to broadcasters and publishers on any platform.

How We Do It

Currently, Public News Service manages independent news services in 37 states, reaching a weekly audience of 30-50 million. On a day-to-day basis we link with hundreds of grassroots organizations who keep us informed on a cross-cutting range of social justice, environmental and economic issues.

Community

We're a national news service with local impact. Our journalists are on the ground in communities throughout the country, and we welcome your help and input as we seek out the stories that matter to you. Our beats focus on critical issues that receive too little attention and help lift up marginalized voices that too often go unheard. By combining legacy and new media, our unique approach to reporting reaches audiences across geographic, political and socio-economic divides. Click here to find the producer in your area.
