J-School Students Take Over 'Times' Site


Similar to what’s going on with the New York Times in the Bay Area, where j-school students provide news stories for the paper, the Times has now partnered with the CUNY Grad School of Journalism, giving the J-School control over The Local, which covers some neighborhoods in Brooklyn. The Times says this “could be a model for expanding hyper-local coverage to many communities at minimal cost.” That is great news! Experience and bylines for journalism students; “minimal” cost news for the New York Times. I wonder how “minimal”!
