Eric Newton: Journalism schools aren’t changing quickly enough

Eric Newton: Journalism schools aren’t changing quickly enough | Journalism Innovation | Scoop.it
The digital age is changing almost everything — who a journalist is, what a story is, which media work to provide news when and where people want it, and how we engage with communities. The only thing that isn’t changing is why. We still care about good journalism (and communications) because in the digital age they still are essential elements of peaceful, productive, self-improving societies.

 

The Peter A. Horvitz Chair in Journalism Innovation was created a Syracuse University for precisely this reason: to embrace change and prepare journalism students for what's next.

The idea behind this startup is simple -- one in-depth story per day focused on a geographic area, starting with New York City. But if done consistently well it could be a real game-changer in local journalism, especially if they can also make money. From their About page:

 

"Narratively slows down the news cycle. We don’t care about the breaking news or the next big headline; we’re devoted exclusively to sharing New York’s untold stories—the rich, intricate narratives that get at the heart of what this city’s all about."
