Re-imagining public journalism for community radio news-gathering

Bridget Backhaus and Associate Professor Leo Bowman

This paper explores the use of public journalism within a community radio news context. It argues that the central tenets of the public journalism movement can help to inform a news gathering and production approach tailored to the needs of community media. Discussions around community radio are framed using Carpentier et alís model of alternative media as rhizome in order to take into account the diverse and specific nature of individual stations. This paper examines a particular case of public journalism used within the The Wire, a national, daily current affairs program broadcast on community radio. Public journalism was employed throughout the story production process in order to modernise and refine public journalism methods to better meet the needs of community radio stations and their audiences.
