On 15 April 2018 The New York Times reported:
A group of journalists have decided to do something about the diminution of newsrooms at the local level. They're making reporting part of a national service program. Report for America, a nonprofit organization modeled after AmeriCorps, aims to install 1,000 journalists in understaffed newsrooms by 2022. Two media veterans, Steven Waldman and Charles Sennott, started the project with funding from sponsors.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
In 1990, daily and weekly newspaper publishers employed about 455,000 people, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By January 2016, that number had fallen to 173,000.
In 2015, [Steven Waldman] wrote a paper funded by the Ford Foundation arguing for the creation of a national service program for journalists. ... The other founder, Mr. Sennott, once worked as the Jerusalem-based Middle East bureau chief for The Boston Globe. He has covered wars and insurgencies in more than a dozen countries. In 2014, he founded GroundTruth, a nonprofit organization that trains foreign correspondents. He decided to join Mr. Waldman in establishing Report for America after the 2016 election.
