J200 Richmond Confidential focuses on local reporting in Richmond, Calif.  Richmond is home to 109,000 residents, and is a news desert that has limited coverage from surrounding Bay Area media. This underserved community relies heavily on Richmond Confidential for information to better understand issues affecting their everyday lives. The site also partners with Richmond Pulse, a youth-led media outlet that has become essential to the community.
