Many of you may have already noticed new content that has begun to appear on our blogs. In addition to our staff-produced blogs, we’re now featuring content from four additional sources: KALW radio news; ProPublica; Environmental Health News; and The Daily Climate. This new content will greatly enhance our daily news offerings, while providing readers with smart, in-depth reporting on issues that go beyond the East Bay and Northern California.
KALW has long been a respected source for Bay Area news, and we recently launched a partnership with the public radio station. We will be offering KALW news and culture blogs on our site, and KALW.org will now feature some of our news and arts and culture coverage as well. In addition, Express staffers and contributors are now being featured weekly on KALW news radio, talking about stories that we have recently published.
News stories from EnvironmentaHealthNews.org and DailyClimate.org will now be featured on the EastBayExpress.com, and occasionally in our print edition, through a new partnership between those nonprofit organizations and the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, of which the Express is a longtime member. EnvironmentalHealthNews.org focuses on environmental issues as they relate to the health of humans and other species. DailyClimate.org focuses on climate change — the causes of it and its ramifications.
Finally, ProPublica.org is a highly respected nonprofit that specializes in investigative journalism. Among the ProPublica stories that we will be featuring are those that focus on politics and the impacts of Big Money.
