Covering rural America

Rural American communities face significant challenges, and so do the journalists who cover those communities. To understand those challenges, the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues convened the first National Summit on Journalism in Rural America. Al Cross, director of the institute, noted that a goal of the program was to create a national community of rural journalists.
