NBC follows through on promise to have local TV stations collaborate with nonprofits

The New York Times | Los Angeles Times
As part of the merger application for NBC Universal and Comcast, NBC had pledged to establish partnerships in five of its markets, modeled on the existing relationship between KNSD-TV and voiceofsandiego.org. "Effectively immediately," Brian Stelter reports, "NBC’s station in Chicago will work with The Chicago Reporter blog and magazine; its station in Philadelphia, with WHYY, a public radio station, and its community site NewsWorks; and its station in Los Angeles, with KPCC, a public radio station. All 10 of NBC’s stations will at times collaborate with ProPublica, the acclaimed investigative journalism nonprofit organization." KPCC's Bill Davis tells the LA Times' James Rainey that the partnership means "we can get to the kind of investigative and enterprise stories we wouldn’t be able to singularly." || Related: Study shows that nonprofits pull back on fundraising efforts after getting government grants (Nieman Journalism Lab) || Earlier: Nonprofit news orgs see validation, new funding in Comcast-NBC merger (Poynter.org)

Guardian readers shape stories during first week of open budgets

Guardian.co.uk One week after The Guardian began disclosing its upcoming story budgets prior to publication, National Editor Dan Roberts writes that the experiment is going well. "Whatever competitive advantage may have been lost by giving rivals a clue what we were up to was more than made up for by a growing range of ideas and tips from readers," he writes. Readers' feedback now shapes the Guardian's coverage in advance. For example, many said they wanted more coverage of the UK government's health reforms. "We initially responded by ramping up our live coverage of the two-day NHS debate in the House of Lords - attracting over 1,000 comments. But we also asked our health reporter to do a bit of digging and list today an upcoming story on how cuts have already begun to hit services," Roberts said. || Earlier: Guardian publishes upcoming story budgets, invites reader feedback
