Distribution of Content By University-led Reporting Programs

University-led reporting programs distribute content to news partners in many ways. Some send out a weekly email with stories, others post them to a website with a republish button, and others distribute them directly to the public.

This is a free program presented by the University of Vermont Center for Community News.
