CUNY is building a B-school within its J school and helping to build a new news business.
I am one of this year’s 16 fellows, selected from more than 100 applicants to forge new business models for the news industry.
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism is building this progressive program from its current iteration as a distinguished fellowship, then into a full Masters degree beginning next year. It’s exciting and there’s more information about it on it’s backer, the Tow’Knight Foundation’s website, 2012 Entrepreneurial Journalism Program Gets Underway.
I’m pictured above, second from the left next to Prof. Jeremy Caplan. To my left are fellows Noah Rosenberg and Ashley Milne-Tyte, we’re all listening to the J school’s dean, Stephen Shepard as he introduces us to the program during orientation week.
