Reporter At-Large is an independent media platform that aims at breaking the hegemony of politically-polarised mainstream media establishments. It will give space to investigative journalists to publish stories that were spiked in newsrooms because of internal and external politics.
The platform will also extend training to print journalists who are losing out in the race with digital journalism and will train journalists from rural and tribal areas to diversify the elitist media discourse.
We are a group of disgruntled reporters. We want to write about things that are not driven by the market or businesses. We want to do good journalism; the journalism that our professors taught us. The journalism that makes us feel proud of ourselves, that brings transformation, that brings impact in people’s lives and not just big corporates and politicians. We want to experiment with modern tools and explore how storytelling can be improved. We want to reclaim journalism from the hands of corporate-controlled media. We are and will always be free, fair and fearless.
