The On The Ground program, which began in 2016, embeds journalists in Memphis neighborhoods. Through this process, we include residents in the production of articles, photo essays, videos and events that reflect their lived experience. We seek to rebalance the news so that Memphians are exposed to stories that help them learn about the city’s challenges and better understand that there are people in every neighborhood across Memphis innovating for solutions.
