Community Info Hub (Online community information hub), $90,000 beginning in 2009 with a KCI matching grant.
“To establish a Web portal where Berks County citizens can find out what is happening in their community. With local media outlets diminishing, this grant will help the Berks Community Television station, a 25-year-old, respected public broadcaster, establish an online community information hub for Berks County. The site, which will be capable of streaming video and hosting blogs and forums, will be staffed by an editor and an investigative journalist, as well as regional citizen journalists. Its reports are expected to be picked up by other regional media outlets.”
