Four NBC affiliates will partner with nonprofit news organizations in those markets, as the New York Times reports, in another initiative Comcast brass pledged to the FCC in the cable operator’s takeover of the storied entertainment brand.
Locally, NBC 10 will partner with WHYY, the region’s Old City based public media outfit.
In January, the planned project to bolster local news was first heralded as a noteworthy tradeoff for the consoidation of two large content and delivery companies. The model was due to follow an existing partnership in San Diego between voiceofsandiego.org and KNSD, which, as Poynter reported, “cooperate to produce regular fact-checking segments, explainers on public policy and other features.”
The details of the partnership between WHYY and NBC 10 have not been made fully clear.
In July, NBC 10 put out a request for proposals to partner with nonprofit news organizations in the region.
