The Investigative News Network is pleased to announce the launch of an updated and more robust website that will provide easier navigation and a wide range of resources and guides, both for its members and other digital newsrooms.
This redesign is part of INN’s ongoing mission to provide services to online newsrooms that are seeking to become sustainable businesses and to produce high-impact investigative and public service journalism. INN has grown to more than 70 nonprofit newsrooms in North America since its founding in 2009.
"With the release of our new website, we have made it easier to not only find best practices in the field, but also share that information with others," said Kevin Davis, CEO and Executive Director of INN.
Davis said the improved website builds on the services that INN has been offering to its members at a time that mainstream journalism has made drastic cuts in its newsroom staffs and resources.
The upgraded site at www.investigativenewsnetwork.org has a “Projects” section that highlights current and past INN initiatives. Current projects include producing guides on best practices and digital tools, Project Largo, the Community Journalism Executive Training program, editorial collaborations, insurance programs, and legal services.
A “Resources” section is the new home for the Nonprofit Journalism Hub, currently hosted at npjhub.org, which became a part of INN in 2011. This section provides guides with best practices and tools for running a nonprofit news organization. INN members can also share documents and lessons learned from their experiences, and the combined knowledge of the network will be accessible to all.
The redesign and upgrade of investigativenewsnetwork.org was completed by ActiveLamp a programming and development agency that helps businesses and organizations to establish and maintain a professional Internet presence.
INN is headquartered in Los Angeles and was created to help the increasing number of nonprofit newsrooms pool resources, promote editorial collaborations and get wider distribution of their work. INN is composed of organizations that produce nonpartisan investigative and public service journalism of regional, national and international scope. INN members produce original, multi-media longform and ongoing stories and analyses of public data to better inform the communities they serve.
