Citizen Journalism

NPR's Talk of the Nation had an interesting segment on citizen journalism on Tuesday. They discussed independent bloggers, podcasting, and blogging newspaper reporters and editors.

I enjoyed hearing panelist John Templeton, the managing editor of the Rocky Mountain News. His statements sounded a lot like things I have heard and read from John Robinson, editor of the News & Record. Like Robinson, Temple blogs, and the paper has additional staff-written blogs.

The Rocky Mountain News also operates a site called YourHub breaks down into a individual web sites for forty communities in the Denver area. The stories and photos at the individual sites come from a combination of community contributors, newspaper staff writers, links to other media sources, and press releases.

Check out As the citizen journalism and blogging evolve in the Triad, it will be worth keeping an eye on Denver.
