In 2009, a small group of Connecticut residents, concerned about the decline in watchdog journalism, formed the Connecticut News Project, Inc.
A few months later, after securing start-up funding and hiring some veteran journalists, CNP launched The Connecticut Mirror, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news website with a very clear mission: Through deep reporting on government policies and politics, to become an invaluable resource for anyone who lives, works or cares about Connecticut, and to hold our policymakers accountable for their decisions and actions.
The Mirror’s small staff consists of award-winning editors and reporters with decades of experience in Connecticut newsrooms or working for other national or state news operations. We are the only state news organization with a full-time reporter in Washington, D.C.
More than 5,000 stories later, we start our fourth year with a still powerful sense of our mission.
