We are hosting a community listening session about local news this February in downtown Phoenix. Our goal is to receive feedback from everyday Arizonans about their likes, frustrations and new ideas to help make local news more impactful.

We’re using the learnings to make sure we are on the right track with how the Arizona Media Association and Arizona Local News Foundation can make more investments in local news across the state.

The listening session will take place on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

We recently held a listening session in Flagstaff, and we hope to continue these valuable engagements throughout the state for the remainder of 2024 and beyond. We are actively seeking direct input from the community to identify areas in which local news can be enhanced or advanced.

If you would like to join the session, please email Alex Wakefield at alex@azmedia.org. Please help us spread the word as we aim for the best turnout possible.
