We do this in order to understand whose voices we are relying on too much and whose voices we might be leaving out.
Almost everything we reported on this year falls into the categories of pandemic, election, racial justice or weather. We relentlessly covered the big events that defined the year.
KTOO’s third-quarter source diversity report includes reporting from our “new normal” pandemic life and the ramp up to the 2020 election.
Here’s our plan for making sure you get timely, fair and accurate news from KTOO on Election Day…and in the news-heavy days to come.
We’ve just finished compiling our third source diversity report, which reflects a period in which the COVID-19 pandemic was wholly present in Alaska.
The pandemic means there are more opportunities every day to talk to new people who haven’t been a part of our coverage before.
We take our public mission seriously and instead of scaling back during these uncertain times, we are ramping up.
As a part of a website redesign for KTOO.org, we’ve consolidated our digital services in order to better serve our online audience.
We’ve started asking everyone who appeared in a news story or was a guest on Juneau Afternoon to identify their gender and race and/or ethnicity.
Part of our newsroom’s mission is to “consciously seek out the voices, perspectives and stories not found in other news outlets.”
