About Us

NeighborMedia.org is a hyperlocal citizen journalism project of Cambridge Community Television that trains and supports Cambridge residents and members of the Cambridge community to report on the people, places, issues and events important to the people of the fifth most populous city in Massachusetts. Founded in 2007, NeighborMedia seeks to fill the news gap in Cambridge, covering news and information that typically goes uncovered or underreported in mainstream and commercial news outlets.

Through unique stories that can only be told via a citizen journalist's perspective, NeighborMedia aims to educate, inform and move the people of Cambridge into action on matters most important to the community. Our team comprises both NeighborMedia reporters and guest contributors. NeighborMedia reporters are Cambridge residents who, in exchange for two written stories or one video piece per month, receive a free membership and free unlimited classes at CCTV. Guest contributors are members of the community with Cambridge-centric news who may wish to post only occasionally or who do not meet the residency requirement for a reporter. NeighborMedia also welcomes news from Cambridge-serving nonprofits.
