MicroMemphis is a hyperlocal news hub produced by the University of Memphis Department of Journalism. The hyperlocal part means we cover stories in and about a distinct section of the city bound by street borders, school districts, but mostly, just by people. Each year, student-journalists cover one neighborhood in the Memphis area. This site is a collection of original reports, videos, and pictures about that community.
The hub part means that we don’t just create new content. We know the web is already a rich source of information about neighborhood stories.We consider it our job to dig through those links, Tweets, and news reports that round out the story of a community. Then we put it all in one place.
