Welcome to Coming From, a space for journalists and news organizations to share who they are, how they think and where they’re coming from. By sharing our stories, we offer an alternative to the ambiguous “voice from nowhere” that has been traditionally adopted in journalism.
Everyone comes from somewhere… where do you come from?
We are looking for community involvement to gather as many examples of “Coming From” statements as possible. These can be personal or institutional in the field of journalism or an adjacent industry.
What we’re not looking for is safe, boilerplate language that can be found in countless newsroom mission statements around the world. A Coming From statement is about true transparency, created in the spirit of open dialogue between journalists and their audience.
Do you have or know of any such examples? If so, please fill out the form below!
