Thirty stories. Twelve journalists. Five communities across Massachusetts.
Since the Great Recession, Massachusetts’ cities and towns have been reeling from dwindling tax receipts and cuts to state aid. With sluggish job growth, unrelenting foreclosures and a Congress unwilling to extend more federal stimulus money, the problems are only going to get worse.
WBUR’s Morning Edition is going on the road next week, broadcasting live from cities and towns on Route 9. Hubbub is going along, too. I put together this video trailer for our special series, “Finding A Way Along Route 9.”
For the technically curious, the video was shot handheld on a Canon 7D SLR. Music by k.Rockshire (licensed Creative Commons).
