Challenge: How can we help small or rural newsrooms develop collaborative relationships to enhance the quality and coverage of local journalism?

Heather Bryant came to journalism through her interest in wildlife biology and her love of writing. And while working her way through a journalism degree, she fell in love with technology and its potential for reporting and distributing news. She is director of Project Facet, which received a Knight Prototype Grant in 2015 to develop open source software that simplifies the editorial process for multiplatform publishers. Bryant is particularly interested in helping smaller news organizations collaborate and share content. She previously was digital services editor at KTOO Public Media in Juneau, Alaska, where she led a team building and managing the websites for a statewide television service and three radio stations. Her experiences at KTOO sparked her interest in improving editorial processes and ultimately led her to begin Project Facet.
