Cambridge [Mass.] residents want more local news and Cambridge Community Television is giving it to them in a fresh, bold way with a makeover of NeighborMedia.org, its citizen journalism web site.
Launched in 2007, NeighborMedia is a program of CCTV that trains Cambridge residents to become reporterscovering the people, places, issues and events of their very own neighborhoods. NeighborMedia.org, the URL containing these multimedia stories, had been housed on CCTV’s own site, cctvcambridge.org. Now, in an effort to give NeighborMedia a distinct identity, a newsier feel and a stronger community presence, CCTV is spinning off NeighborMedia.org into its own web site with a design and interface that is all its own. The brand new NeighborMedia.org officially launched this week.
