Journalism hub[edit]

In 2018, KPBS held discussions with Capital Public Radio, KQED in San Francisco, and KPCC in Pasadena to form a "Journalist hub", following a recent initiative of NPR to deepen collaboration between NPR and member stations on journalism, fundraising and digital platforms. As the stations expand their work together, they aim to "have less redundancy in our coverage and more proficiency", according to Joe Barr, chief content officer at Capital Public Radio. The stations want to report on state-wide events collectively instead of duplicating efforts, for example when reporting on state's wildfires.[3]
