Twin Cities Daily Planet
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Jeremy Iggers

The Twin Cities Daily Planet, a project of the Twin Cities Media Alliance, combines original reporting by citizen journalists with the best of the ineighborhood, community and ethnic press. Our primary focus is on under-reported stories and under-served communities, and on issues including education, health care, transportation and ethnic and immigrant communities. The Daily Planet has individual neighborhood pages for all 98 Minneapolis and St. Paul neighborhoods, featuring profiles of each neighborhood, information about neighborhood resources, calendar listings for local events, and a map and directory of neighborhood businesses and attractions.
