Earlier this week, we heard from veteran NPR journalists Renee Montagne and Kelly McEvers, talking about the craft of journalism and a specific approach called solutions journalism, defined by some as rigorous reporting on effective responses to social problems. Next, we speak with a staff reporter from the San Luis Obispo Tribune about another approach, called engagement journalism, and a current project focused on air quality on the Nipomo Mesa, in south San Luis Obispo County.
That was San Luis Obispo Tribune reporter Monica Vaughan, speaking about her current reporting project on air quality on the Nipomo Mesa. Vaughan and the Tribune are hosting a public forum on air quality on the Nipomo Mesa on September 4, 2019 at the Mesa Middle School. Click here for more information. There is also a Spanish version.
