Pubmedia journalists among 13 awarded U.S. Knight Journalism Fellowships
The 13 U.S. journalists just awarded John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships to pursue proposals for journalism innovation at Stanford University during the upcoming academic year include several with public-media ties. Barbara Allen, a producer/engineer at Chicago's WTTW-TV, will develop a transmedia platform to allow audiences to virtually experience historical events; Andrew Donohue, editor of the nonprofit news outlet Voice of San Diego, will create sustainable investigative news projects built around crowd-sourcing, transparency and narrative storytelling; Latoya Peterson, a former Public Media Corps fellow and editor and owner of Racialicious.com, will work to democratize communication and societal participation through the multimedia and text capabilities of mobile technology; and Eric Westervelt, Berlin correspondent for NPR News, will create a digital international news platform using all aspects of new media.
