CPB seeks to increase the capacity of public radio and television stations to create high-quality original and enterprise journalism by supporting Regional Journalism Collaborations ("RJCs") that will establish reporting partnerships between multiple station newsrooms in a state or region. Each RJC should be driven by a focused editorial strategy that is of common interest to the communities served by the RJCs and that will result in more original and enterprise journalism and more "news of distinction" in identified topic areas ("Editorial Strategy"). The objectives of the RJCs are to leverage public media's network of local stations to provide stronger local news service to the public media audience and to increase the flow of locally-produced content of national interest to the signature national programs. An additional objective of the RJCs is to expand the diversity of public media's journalism workforce and coverage to reflect the racial and ethnic diversity and range of perspectives throughout America.
