Central Current is in its startup phase. We’re actively seeking the community’s feedback to help us grow and to frame the future of local news in Central New York.
Central Current, Inc. was founded in 2020. In January 2022, we hired our first editor-in-chief Julie McMahon who is leading the nonprofit organization and newsroom. In March 2022, we expanded our board of directors who share our passion and commitment to local, independent journalism.
We are connecting with similar organizations across the country to learn from their experiences, understand best practices, and discover ways to address underserved communities and inequities in news coverage. We are actively inviting local freelance journalists to contact us and pitch their ideas.
We have also begun fundraising toward our $1 million goal, to build a strong foundation to support the organization for its first three years. Consider donating to ensure Central Current is sustainable and can continue serving Central New York for years to come.
