Changing the Face of Local Journalism

Join us via Zoom for an important discussion with Josh Barousse and Ramona Giwargis, co-founders of San Jose Spotlight news service. 

San José Spotlight is the city’s first nonprofit news organization dedicated to independent political and business reporting. Their mission is to change the face of local journalism by building a community-supported newsroom that ignites civic engagement, educates citizens and strengthens our democracy.

San José Spotlight is the proud recipient of the Publisher of the Year 2020 awarded by the Local Independent Online News Publishers. 

Josh has worked for a variety of nonprofit organizations in Silicon Valley and beyond and serves as Spotlight’s Director of Development. Ramona has covered politics and government for more than 10 years and previously worked as the Mercury News San Jose City Hall reporter. 

The one hour Zoom meeting will begin promptly at noon. Questions from attendees are encouraged and can be submitted when you register or during the event.
