For the Press

We welcome inquiries from the press about rural issues and events. We can provide background and analysis on rural topics. In addition, we're happy to help connect journalists with organizations and people who can speak with first-hand knowledge about rural life and culture. One place to find story ideas and background on rural America is the Daily Yonder, the Center for Rural Strategies online news platform.

For more information, contact Dee Davis, president, at (606) 632-3244 or Tim Marema, vice president and editor of the Daily Yonder, at (865) 688-9546 or
