If you’re a journalist, media professional or avid reader of news, entrepreneurial journalism is likely a blip on your radar already.
Journalism has always embraced revolutionary ideas — anything that will contribute to better, more authentic storytelling is embraced with open arms. But in America’s shifting media landscape, the future (and even survival) of journalism will depend on those willing to explore new models and ideas wholeheartedly. CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism — and their Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism — is driving this media transition.
The center sparks research on the the economics of modern journalism, including the most sustainable business models, and provides a welcoming environment for new ideas and projects.
On Wednesday, I spoke to a class of 15 entrepreneurial journalism students about the platform, tying our brand’s experience into the students’ interests in new media. The talk was facilitated by Professor Jeremy Caplan, the Tow-Knight Center’s Director of Education.
