On Communications Podcast: Charlie Kratovil, award-winning hyperlocal journalist

Lubetkin on Communications Podcast

In this episode of the Lubetkin on Communications podcast, we have a conversation with Charlie Kratovil, a community activist and award-winning hyperlocal newspaper editor in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Kratovil started the local news website New Brunswick Today, which has broken several exclusive stories, including reports on corruption in the New Brunswick municipal water utility. Earlier this year, he received national attention when he was forcibly ejected from a speech by White House correspondent April Ryan — an event he had been invited to cover by representatives of the organization that arranged the speech. Charlie talks about the experience and its implications for news coverage, and discusses the challenges facing hyperlocal news sites, including stable sources of financial support. New Brunswick Today got a boost in 2017 when “Full Frontal” TV host Samantha Bee interviewed Kratovil and supported his fund-raising efforts.
