Crowdsourcing map will track changes in Canada’s media

The Kelowna Daily Courier featured UBCO research on the future of local journalism and news sources across Canada.

Jon Corbett, a professor of community, culture and global studies, is working with Ryerson University’s school of journalism and Royal Roads University on the Local News Research Project.

“There has been a huge transformation of media and the way people are getting their news in the past 10 years,” says Corbett. “We want to know what type of news are people getting, is it from the same source, and is it a credible source? We want to examine the consumption of news across the country and how it has changed.”
