Do you have video or photos that you want to share with Delaware Newsline? It’s easy! | Most of the news and information you see on the TV news or in the daily newspaper was generated by people just like you. They send information to the media, usually via press releases and personal contact. And good news tips from people in the community shows up on TV, newspapers, and at online News media in the same way.
We believe DNTV Digital needs to be a space for people from Delaware communities to tell their own stories from their own perspectives.
DNTV Digital endeavors to share stories that challenge dominant narratives, bring context and nuance to complex issues, and support and uplift communities in need. Independent, ethical journalism helps citizens understand society’s problems and develop meaningful solutions.
Investigative reporting is critical to increasing public awareness and engagement, and provides a much-needed platform for voices that are under-represented in traditional media. There is a desperate need to tell these stories as traditional models of support for journalism are in decline and as a result, voices are going unheard and issues going under-reported as traditional media struggles to survive.
Support for community-based journalism brings important issues to light in a way that creates dialogue and real change. Our mission is to investigate and report on important issues impacting our local communities, give voice to the under-represented, and increase public awareness and engagement around these issues.
Your support for community-based journalism helps bring important issues to light in a way that creates powerful community dialogue and a deeper understanding of the challenges we face. Our reporters investigate and report on important issues impacting our communities, give a voice to the under-represented, and increase public awareness and engagement around these issues.
You can help us bring these stories to life in front of thousands, if not millions, of readers. We look for stories featuring communities who have historically been oppressed in society and kept out of mainstream media, such as people of color, LGBTQIA, immigrant, indigenous, refugee, youth, differently-abled, feminist/womanist, ex-offender and low-income communities. There is room on our platform for mission–friendly work that comes from allies to community voices—and we welcome that. But such work needs to forward the conversation beyond the realities communities deal with every day.
