Prof. Matt Weber and a Ph.D. student are announced as Knight Foundation Innovation Fellows for their project, “Digital Journalism and the Challenges of Managing a 21st Century Newsroom Workforce.” This project examines the changing composition of newsroom workforces by analyzing the work histories, educational backgrounds, and employee skillsets of newsroom employees. The results of this study will provide publishers and managing editors with specific recommendations regarding recruiting strategies, target skills, and educational backgrounds that will complement existing newsroom workforces.
