House Bill Seeks to Shore Up Local Journalism

House Bill Seeks to Shore Up Local Journalism

It may not be signed into law soon, but Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., and Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., have introduced a bill called the Local Journalism Sustainability Act

Among other things, the bipartisan measure would provide tax credits to local newspapers, subscribers and advertisers.

"Local journalism is a bedrock pillar of communities across the United States," Kirkpatrick stated. "Unfortunately, journalistic endeavors throughout the country face major economic struggles that put the future of many publications in serious jeopardy." COVID-19 has made these problems even more severe, she noted.

How Customer Service Can Build Trust and Engagement with Audiences

How Customer Service Can Build Trust and Engagement with AudiencesWith advertising becoming a less reliable source of revenue for the embattled journalism industry, more news outlets are turning toward sources of consumer revenue to shore up their coffers.

This rise of subscription and membership models has dovetailed with the rise of audience engagement in recent years, as newsrooms seek to build stronger relationships with their audiences.

But scant attention has been paid to revitalizing approaches to customer service, which poses a problem because support teams are often the first or only point of contact for many customers.

Bad service, in other words, means a bad first impression and ultimately a bad reputation.
