Content Audits and Centering Audience

Learn about content audits, making inclusivity part of story workflow and growing subscribers in underserved communities from four Chicago-area newsrooms.
In the first two case studies, the Chicago Sun-Times and WGN-TV share their approaches to content audits. Next, the Associated Press Midwest Bureau describes its internal Inclusion Champions program. In the final case study, listen to the Chicago Tribune discuss subscriber-focused efforts centering underserved communities.
