KQED, KALW join in-depth news experiment
KQED-FM 88.5 and KALW 91.7 are among the outlets picked by National Public Radio to participate in a major news experiment backed by $3 million in support from foundations, according to paidContent.org. With USAToday.com editor Joel Sucherman at the helm, each station will focus in-depth on one major issue, such as green energy, health care or immigration, to name a few examples. The coverage will have a strong local focus for each station, but will also have national relevance.
