New Podcast: Innovation in Romanian Journalism

February 21, 2020

In the last episode of the Media Influence Matrix: Romania series, Dumitrita Holdis collected three initiatives or efforts that try new ways of doing journalism. From new funding models, forms of association or community involvement, these examples of innovation show courage and temerity.

Ștefan Mako from Inclusiv talks about a journalistic project that managed to get a community of members to support them not just financially, but also with their expertise and their feedback; Cristina Guseth from Freedom House Romania talks about Press Hub, a network of independent local media outlets trying to bypass local pressure in order to survive financially, and Liana Ganea from Active Watch will tell us about Radio Civic, the first rural community radios in Romania.

The Romanian report of the Matrix was published in 2019, and we launched a series of podcasts that accompanies it, and also summarizes the findings of the three reports discussing funding, governance and media technology in the country.
