With the community journalism program, BIG offers members the chance to use their production skills outside of the studio by exploring and reporting news affecting Brookline. BIG also partners with news-focused organizations to provide local news and lifestyle segments.
With our members, staff, interns and volunteers, we share the story of the town through hyper-local journalism, with past stories covering topics from town government changes, to historic Brookline secrets, to personal resident profiles. We have bi-weekly roundtable meetings to follow up on developing stories, pitch new ones, and use the strength of the group as a resource to tackle down leads. As one of our journalists, the only limit you have is the zip code (and even that is negotiable!).
