Microsoft is piloting a new project to increase and support local news in four cities across the country including Fresno. KVPR was among the newsrooms chosen for the collaboration along with the Fresno Bee, Vida en el Valle and Radio Bilingue. To learn more, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with Valley Public Radio reporter Madi Bolanos and News Director Alice Daniel. Also joining the conversation were Project Director Rebecca Plevin and Radio Bilingue Director of National News and Information Samuel Orozco.

Valley Public Radio will participate in a new pilot program announced today by Microsoft that will help support local journalism in the Fresno area.
