The National Trust for Local News preserves and transforms community news outlets facing succession and other transitions of ownership. We do so by creating new ownership structures and making transformations in the business, editorial, and talent of legacy community newsrooms. Our investments promote financial sustainability, audience engagement, and public service, which result in stronger local economies, higher civic participation, greater public accountability, and more deeply connected and informed communities.
WHY WORK WITH US?
We love what we do! Local news is vital to our country and we want to support thriving communities.
We like working together! Our colleagues are caring people from a range of backgrounds who enjoy learning with each other.
We’re growing! The Trust is in a critical, early stage of development in which we are building our proof of concept and putting in place the processes and resources necessary to scale our impact. We are a small, committed, and entrepreneurial team looking for someone who is comfortable working on details as well as strategy in a fast paced, distributed and virtual work environment.
Our core values are meaningful: We strive for equity, transparency, accountability, and humility. While the urgency of our mission creates a bias to action, we are careful, thoughtful, and flexible. We understand that this is ‘long haul’ work that is best supported by an environment of trust, mutual respect, and work-life balance.
We do not have any open positions at this time.
