A startup called Coda Story wants to help journalists keep reporting on stories after ‘mainstream media’ has left
Co-founder of Coda Story and former BBC correspondent Natalia Antelava says, “In the news business, we always descend on places when big events happen and then leave just as suddenly. … The result? Gaping holes in public understanding of the crises that are shaping our world.” Coda Story is a crisis reporting platform based in New York that aims to fix that problem. Like other news outlets, Coda Story will deploy journalists after a crisis, but instead will plan to keep those journalists on the story for up to a year. Through that long-term reporting, Antelava says Coda Story will also aim to put individual stories in the context of larger events.
