Kris Olson, co-founder and consulting editor of the Marblehead Current, joins Daniel Ford on Friday Morning Coffee to chat about his career in journalism and why local community news is so important. 

In her biweekly intro, Caitlin Malcuit discusses other state-led community efforts to expand local journalism, the Rebuild Local News nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, and the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism's $25 million, state-funded fellowship program. She also talks about a 2022 report that found that newspapers in the United States are closing at a rate of two a week, which makes all of these programs, grants, and tax breaks, not only altruistic, but necessary.
