Journalism Outreach Program Makes News

An outreach program by Belmont University’s journalism program is the subject of a story in Friday’s edition of The Tennessean’s Davison A.M. section. Here’s an excerpt.

Belmont University and the National Association of Black Journalists have teamed up with Maplewood High School to provide students contact with minority journalists. Members of the local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, along with Belmont journalism faculty, will meet regularly with aspiring journalism students to talk about their careers. The project is aimed at increasing the number of minority news anchors, reporters and editors in newsrooms, a number that organizers say is not on part with the number of minorities in the population at large.
