Somerville Community Summit

It feels like Somerville is becoming a news desert, a place where there is not enough news reporting to maintain an informed citizenry. Whether it’s happenings across the city, investigative deep dives or just “heroes among us” stories, it’s hard to find a reliable source for all the news that’s fit to print in the city. I’m not the only one who feels that way. Today, I attended the Somerville Community Summit, an event organized by the Somerville Media Center, the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism and DigBoston. The event brought a dozen or so journalists together from different outlets, and perhaps a hundred or so citizens, who the opportunity to pitch stories about what’s going on around the city. Really great event and an encouraging turnout, particularly from the journalists.
