More public broadcasting money for local journalism

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has $7.5 million to pay public radio and television stations to do original reporting on issues of local interest, the New York Times reports.

The seed-money-to-foster-local/national-collaboration sounds quite similar to NPR's Project Argo, which was launched last summer with money from CPB and the Knight Foundation.

Also, "collaboration" is the trendiest word in public broadcasting these days.
