A #Gopsignal project to bring high-quality live, in-person and online journalism to communities in underserved communities is now live in Australia.
The #Gopa project is run by a team of digital talent and journalists from the Global Network, a group of media companies that is working on a variety of projects in Australia including a partnership with the ABC, the Guardian and a number of local newspapers and magazines.
“This project has the potential to change the way we talk about news, and the way people interact with news,” co-founder and CEO of the Global Networks, Ian Stewart, said in a statement.
“Our aim is to bring together a diverse group of journalists and journalists-in-training to produce high-caliber content to build a stronger and better community.”
A number of prominent Australian news organisations including the ABC and The Australian, as well as the Herald Sun and The Courier Mail, have signed up to the #gopra project.
“We’ve had some of the most important national newspapers sign up,” Mr Stewart said.
The ABC said the #getgoprop project was an “important part of our commitment to delivering the ABC’s high quality journalism”. “
In a lot more rural and remote communities, it’s very rare to get a local outlet, so we’ve been trying to reach out to them and try and build something out of it.”
The ABC said the #getgoprop project was an “important part of our commitment to delivering the ABC’s high quality journalism”.
“The project’s been a real hit and we’re happy to have a part of it here in Australia,” ABC managing director of news and current affairs, John McEntee, said.
“The ABC’s mission is to deliver stories about Australia and Australia’s diverse community, which we think are important for our audiences to hear.”
Mr McEnte said the ABC was also committed to building a broader reach in the country’s small and rural communities.
He said the project was designed to provide a way for the ABC to better inform the local communities about its coverage and what it covers.
In August, the ABC launched its own #getgram project, which provides access to local news articles by leading online news organisations and local newspaper organisations, as part of a campaign to promote the ABC News app in more remote communities.
The project aims to reach as many people as possible.
The #Goppersignal is part of an initiative by Global Networks to create a platform that will help local journalism organisations, newsrooms and news organisations reach more people.
Goprosignal aims to bring news to the “unconnected”, “underprivileged”, “low income”, “middle income”, and “wealthy” in undersised communities in Australia, Mr Stewart told ABC Radio Melbourne.
Mr Stewart said the hashtag #getgono was created after he spoke to the ABC about the #gram project.
“I’ve been working on this project for a long time and it just seems like it just made sense to bring it out now,” he said.
