Our Workplace & Culture
Issue Media Group (IMG) is a leading voice of solutions journalism focused on strengthening communities and supporting the advancement of issues. Founded in Detroit in 2005, Issue Media Group (IMG) operates a national network of online media outlets leveraging the power of solutions-based and narrative journalism to enhance attachment to place and advance community change. IMG publications aim to connect readers to their communities’ most visionary and innovative people, projects, businesses, and organizations – fostering civic capacity, improving understanding of key issues, amplifying underserved voices, and building community attachment during a time of local media decline.
IMG works with like-minded stakeholders (coalitions) across public, private, nonprofit, and grassroots organizations whose values and missions align with ours through an underwriting publishing model. Our journalists connect with community stakeholders through regular listening sessions to build trust and shape authentic community stories.
IMG's work has been recognized and supported by leading journalism organizations nationally, including INC Magazine, Knight Foundation, Columbia Journalism Review, Facebook, Lenfest Institute, Google, Solutions Journalism Network, Ground Source, and Society for Professional Journalists.
