The News StationThe News StationNational (DC/Colorado-based)
The News Station is a National Alt-Weekly. We prize hiring local writers, whether veteran or up and coming, to pen for us. They know their communities best. Period. Our goal is to use our online, national perch to highlight how Americans – and our communities – are more alike than different. Ultimately, we’re a culture publication – we just cover the parts of American culture many other outlets don’t speak of or pay with mere, irregular lip service. That includes simmering racial unrest, overflowing prisons, confusion around federal drug policies (or the lack thereof), arts, healthy substance use, music, evolving drug laws, etc. While we have some of the nation’s top, veteran reporters filing content for us, we’re also a training ground for aspiring writers, including prisoners, young folks, former prisoners, college students, etc. We prize commissioning stories from out of work journalists.
