Become a Community Journalist and Report on Cambridge People, Places, Issues & Events

CCTV's community journalism platform is growing its team of volunteer reporters!

Are you:

  • A community advocate, activist, artist or member of an organization interested in sharing news and perspectives about the issues you care about?
  • A credit-earning college student who is interested in gaining real-world media experience?
  • Wishing to share hyperlocal stories about the people, places, issues and events of Cambridge's very own communities?
  • Looking to provide a global audience with a Cambridge-centric perspective on issues facing our nation and the world?
  • Hoping to build multimedia journalism and media production skills?
  • Intrigued by the idea of receiving a free CCTV membership, unlimited free classes at CCTV, and a small stipend for contributing to our news team?

If you answered yes, we want you on our team!

Here are ways you can contribute:

  • Ongoing Reporter: Cambridge residents who contribute 2 written pieces or 1 video per month. They get a free CCTV membership and free unlimited classes. Eligible to receive stipends.
  • Guest Contributor: Individuals who can’t meet the ongoing reporter commitment or who don’t live in Cambridge and still want to submit the occasional or 1-time piece. No free CCTV membership, but get access to NeighborMedia platform.
  • Nonprofit Neighbor: Cambridge-serving nonprofits and organizations can share their Cambridge-centric news on NeighborMedia for free.
  • Intern: Interns are given weekly assignments and gain free CCTV membership and free classes for four-month period. Can earn college credit through school.
