Here’s the latest 4MR audio report from MediaShift. In this week’s edition, I look at the new Bay Area News Project, a non-profit startup with $5 million in funding from financier Warren Hellman, in association with KQED and UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism. Plus, the FCC’s new chairman Julius Genachowski makes waves by supporting new rules for Net neutrality, and I ask Just One Question to Daylife CEO Upendra Shardanand.
