Barancik Foundation and WUSF partner expand Gulf Coast news coverage

by Margaret Willard

The Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation and WUSF Public Media have launched a journalism collaboration to expand the coverage of news in Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto counties called the Community News Collaborative (CNC).

Thanks to the nearly $600,000 donation from the Barancik Foundation, the project was able to finance the hiring of an editor and four multimedia reporters who will create print, video and audio content for distribution to more than a dozen news outlets across the Gulf Coast.

“Journalism is the lifeblood of a functioning democracy and a civic-minded population,” said Barancik Foundation’s President and CEO Teri A. Hansen.
