Reynolds Center names fellows
by Chris Roush
The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalismhas selected 31 fellows – 16 journalists and 15 professors – for four days of intensive study in business journalism.
The fellows will attend separate, all-expenses-paid seminars Jan. 2-5 at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Phoenix. Journalists in the Strictly Financials Seminar learn how to dissect financial statements and SEC documents.
Prospective business journalism professors receive training in how to teach a university-level course in business journalism.
“The professionalism of the applicants for this seventh year of our annual business journalism seminars has been impressive,” said Andrew Leckey, president of the Reynolds Center and the Reynolds Chair in Business Journalism at the Cronkite School. “The demand for quality coverage of business and economic issues continues to grow, with news organizations and universities rising to the occasion.”
The seminars, taught by highly regarded business journalists and business journalism professors, are part of Reynolds Business Journalism Week at the Cronkite School. A highlight of the week is a discussion with the legendary investigative-reporting duo of Don Barlett and Jim Steele, along with the 2012 winners of the Reynolds Center’s Barlett & Steele Awards for Investigative Business Journalism.
