We are currently focused on five key issues: Food security, housing, health and safety, jobs and money and mental health and domestic violence — areas with longstanding information gaps we intend to help close during the coronavirus crisis and its aftermath.
We use surveys and other forms of outreach to inform our reporting. Our No. 1 focus is providing resources to equip residents to create a better, and more just and equitable Milwaukee.
Jimmy is looking for ways to connect with Milwaukee residents and help News414 newsrooms translate their information needs into news coverage.
Jimmy grew up on the South Side of Milwaukee and spent 2013-2015 as a Milwaukee firefighter, where he also led a multimedia campaign to improve firefighter health and wellness. Jimmy spent the past four years at New Hampshire Public Radio, where he launched, co-hosted and produced The Second Greatest Show on Earth, which provided a platform for listener questions and engagement. He has come home to help lead News414.
