WBUR Opens Bureau Inside the Dorchester Reporter Newsroom
— A note from WBUR Executive News Director Tom Melville
WBUR has opened a news bureau inside the newsroom of the Dorchester Reporter in Boston’s largest and most populous neighborhood. WBUR reporters will work in conjunction with Dorchester Reporter journalists to tell community-based stories of interest to all WBUR listeners and readers.
Dorchester on its own would be the fifth largest city in Massachusetts. It is a diverse community and WBUR reporters will tell stories that explore its rich diversity – its people, its politics, its arts and culture, its businesses, its community life.
The new WBUR bureau includes a fully functioning radio studio to allow WBUR and Dorchester Reporter journalists to broadcast live.
