The family of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt donated $4.7 million to NPR newsrooms in the Midwest and California as the economic fallout from the pandemic wreaks havoc on the local news industry.
“Now more than ever, we depend on high-quality journalism for timely and critical information,” Eric Schmidt’s wife, Wendy Schmidt, said in a statement to NPR.
