At The Assembly, we are looking to build and deepen relationships in 2023 — with journalists, with other outlets, and in specific parts of the state.

We expect to add several reporters to our team next year who will be digging in on key issues of power and place, with a focus on how we can partner with and enhance the statewide news ecosystem.

We think a cooperative mindset can help us be bigger than the sum of our parts as journalists covering this state.
