On September 30, INMA awarded 30 young professionals around the world with its second class of “30 Under 30” award as part of its Young Professionals Initiative. This is the 21st in a series of 30 features about these impressive rising media stars who are shaping our industry. 

Katherine Landecks passion for journalism first became apparent when she was 7 and launched a crusade to start a school newspaper.

Since then, Katherine has continued cultivating her relationship with journalism, always looking for ways to innovate.

“I don’t believe that we are in a fight to save local news; I believe we are in the fight to transform it. It’s a fight that comes down to the bravery to try new things and become participant stakeholders in the communities we serve.”

As a leader in that fight, she works to “rally the troops” and show them what is possible by introducing new initiatives and rethinking everything from subscriptions strategies to sports coverage.

“The industry needs to … focus on what it could be right now with the tools in front of us. If we do a better job of investing in the people in our communities and commit to solving the problems with the tools we have in front of us, we can revitalise local news.”
