The Buzz 11.30.23
Mental health challenges for journalists have been well documented in recent years, but the International Society of Weekly Newspaper Editors and the Huck Boyd National Center for Community Media at Kansas State University set out to look at a particular subset: “community journalists, specifically small-town rural U.S. news workers” who live and work in “oft-forgotten communities.” A 2023 research paper analyzes the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on this group of journalists, with a focus on 155 small newspapers, with a circulation of 3,000 or less, in Georgia and South Dakota. Responding publishers gave a range of answers, some reporting that the pandemic – and its accompanying financial insecurity – impacted their and their staff’s mental health greatly. Others said it did not, with some dismissing Covid as a hoax, with one respondent writing that they put their “trust in God and do not let outside influences affect me.” The study findings also note that “seeking professional help in a small town can be a challenge because of a lack of resources and potential stigmas.”
