    One Week Left to Enter the Barlett & Steele Awards Contest

    Journalists still have time to enter the 2016 Barlett & Steele Awards for Investigative Business Journalism.


    The awards contest, administered by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, annually honors the best investigative business reporting in the country. The contest is named for the renowned investigative reporting team of Don Barlett and Jim Steele, whose numerous awards include two Pulitzer Prizes.

    Gold, silver and bronze winners receive cash awards of $5,000, $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.

    The Associated Press, Minneapolis Star Tribune and The Palm Beach Post won the top awards in 2015. “Seafood from Slaves” by the AP’s Robin McDowell, Margie Mason, Martha Mendoza and Esther Htusan went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in April.

    “Money and the economy are increasingly important topics to readers and viewers, and we want to encourage and recognize media organizations that tackle those subjects in meaningful and creative ways,” said Andrew Leckey, president of the Reynolds Center. Leckey said many of the best business investigations combine the traditional tools of investigative reporting, such as data analysis and public records, with compelling storytelling.

    Entries for this year’s contest must have been published between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016. Editors or contest coordinators of media outlets may submit up to two entries, each containing up to four articles.

    Entry rules and a link to the application are available at http://businessjournalism.org/barlett-steele-awards/.

    The deadline to enter this year’s competition is Aug. 1, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

    About Barlett and Steele
    Don Barlett and Jim Steele have worked together for more than three decades, first at The Philadelphia Inquirer (1971-1997), where they won two Pulitzer Prizes and scores of other national journalism awards, then at Time magazine (1997-2006), where they earned two National Magazine Awards, becoming the first journalists in history to win both the Pulitzer and its magazine equivalent. They are now contributing editors at Vanity Fair. The Washington Journalism Review said of Barlett and Steele: “They are almost certainly the best team in the history of investigative reporting.”

    About the Reynolds Center
    The Reynolds Center is part of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU. Since 2003, more than 22,000 journalists have benefitted from the Reynolds Center’s free training. The center’s mission is to help journalists improve business coverage through in-person and online training and its website, BusinessJournalism.org.

    The center is funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, a national philanthropic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Headquartered in Las Vegas, it has committed more than $145 million nationwide through its journalism program.

First-time exhibitors include Akamai, Arista Networks, CCPIT.ECC, Draco Broadcast and IBM Cloud Video.

    “These are positive developments that illustrate the dynamic nature of this industry,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. “The new branding has allowed us to leverage the power of NAB Show and the NAB Show community to offer an enriched experience for attendees as they explore the latest and most important trends in broadcast, media and entertainment in the world’s most media-centric city.”

    New for 2016, 50+ educational sessions will be held on five Inspiration Stages located throughout the show floor. Each stage will feature 30-minute sessions on topics such as New York film and television productions, live events, news, innovation investments, advanced advertising, over-the-top content, virtual reality and satellite technology. Additionally, the show floor will feature an area dedicated to networking and interacting with session speakers and panelists.

    New diversity initiative offers paid New York internships to minority journalism students


    - City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism to lead diversity initiative with $1.2 million from Knight Foundation -

    NEW YORK—Sept. 25, 2014—To address the underrepresentation of minority journalists in newsrooms, the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism will launch a diversity initiative that includes an all-expenses-paid, two-month summer internship program for 20 participants and free tuition for five students. The three-year diversity initiative is supported by $1.2 million from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

    The CUNY J-School will recruit participants from historically black colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions, CUNY, the State University of New York (SUNY) and the membership of associations representing underserved populations, such as the Asian American Journalists Association, the National Association of Black Journalists, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Native American Journalists Association.

    The program will begin in Summer 2015. The 20 participants will intern for two months at journalism outlets in New York, while receiving supplemental instruction from the CUNY J-School’s faculty. Knight funding will cover the students’ travel expenses, as well as housing and living costs for the period.

    At the end of each summer, five of the students will receive scholarships covering their entire tuition at the CUNY J-School, if they choose to apply and are accepted. They will have two years from the time of their offers to decide if they would like to pursue the graduate school opportunity.

    “This program gives deserving students from all over the country the opportunity to receive intensive journalism training in the nation’s top media market,” said Sarah Bartlett, dean of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. “By strengthening their skills, we enhance their future employment prospects, while helping to increase the diversity of the industry’s newsrooms and our own classrooms.”

    “For newsrooms to be able to innovate, they need to include a variety of backgrounds and perspectives; diversity is key to innovation,” said Marie Gilot, Knight Foundation program officer for journalism. “The students who join this program will hone their skills and make key connections, so they are better prepared to meet the demands of some of the best newsrooms in country.”

    Joanna Hernandez, who has been the director of career services at the CUNY J-School for the past two years, will lead the initiative. Hernandez is the National Association of Hispanic Journalist’s representative on the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC) and a former president of UNITY: Journalists for Diversity.

    The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism prepares students from a broad range of economic, racial and ethnic backgrounds to produce high-quality journalism at a time of rapid change. It offers a Master of Arts in journalism and an M.A. in entrepreneurial journalism, and is seeking approval for an M.A. in social journalism, which it expects to launch in 2015.

    Support for City University of New York is one part of Knight's efforts to encourage newsroom diversity and advance excellence in journalism. The Knight diversity initiative includes previous work with historically black colleges and universities, including journalism programs at Morgan State and Hampton University; the International Center for Journalists “Back to the Newsroom” initiative; sponsorships of annual conferences (Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists); and more.

    For more information on the CUNY J-School’s new diversity initiative, contact Dean Sarah Bartlett at sarah.bartlett@journalism.cuny.edu or Joanna Hernandez at Joanna.hernandez@journalism.cuny.edu.

There will also be sessions on using social media for health reporting and the impact of gun violence on children and teens in communities of color.

    On Saturday, April 6, journalists will have the opportunity to participate in a roundtable workshop at the National Press Club which will help them digest what they have learned, formulate story ideas and discuss innovative ways to present the information to their respective audiences.

    “Whether you are a dedicated health beat reporter or health issues arise in your coverage of business, housing, education or politics, this conference will help you build stronger stories,” said NABJ Parliamentarian and Conference Chair Cindy George.

    Top 50 Journalism Professors in 2012


    - Journalism Degrees and Programs -

    By JournalismDegree.org – To recognize the accomplishments of top-tier journalism and communications professors across the country, Journalism Degree.org has developed a list of the Top 50 Journalism Professors in 2012. By using the navigation bar above, you can locate professors in a specific region of the United States.

    JournalismDegree.org
    Traditionally, major news media channels were the chief transmitters of information about public affairs and pop culture. However, the role of journalism is changing as digital news media becomes more prevalent. We’ve seen a shift towards digital content with the launch of e-readers, smartphones, and other electronic devices. This challenges news organizations to adapt quickly to the changing nature of news coverage. Educators, too, must adapt their programs to train students to enter a digitally-evolving workforce.

    We hope the educators featured here inspire future reporters and communicators to explore the field of journalism. The following list introduces 50 admirable professors, in no particular order. The list was created using independent research with the sole purpose of being a resource for our readers.  View list
