Has Covid-19 Affected Your Media Outlet? Tell Us!
COVID-19 is having a devastating impact on the media industry, forcing everything from national and community newspapers to magazines and broadcasters to make difficult changes. A new project from J-Source, the Canadian Association of Journalists and the Local News Research Centre is tracking those changes, including print reductions, pay cuts, layoffs and more. If your publication or outlet has had to adjust its operations due to the conditions surrounding the pandemic, please consider helping the project researchers by submitting details using this form. The verified data collected from news reports, interviews and that provided by media workers like you through this form will be included in a national map of COVID-19 media impacts that will be published on the project partner’s websites. By having the fullest set of information across the sector, the project team will be able to offer the most thorough snapshot of media changes possible, providing a tool for editors, journalists, policymakers and more to understand how the industry has been affected by COVID-19.
