Sustaining trust and a financial future for local news: Gallup and Knight Foundation researchers share news study findings


Local news is still more trusted than national news, but new research shows that trust is more fragile than previously understood. At the same time, local news organizations are facing a daunting financial future. In this era of waning trust and financial support, what are the prospects for sustaining this fundamental democratic institution? This fall, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Gallup are releasing two news studies that address issues critical to the future of local news. In this webinar hosted by Local Media Association, get the latest information and ask questions directly of the researchers.
