India: Improving News Technologies and Access to Information


Knight International Journalism Fellow Nasr ul Hadi works with media organizations in India to develop and expand the use of news technologies and improve access to quality information in the region.

Hadi will help English- and Hindi-language newsrooms in India adopt a “digital supply chain” to integrate technology into all stages of news production – from collecting, verifying and analyzing data and other information to packaging, distribution and audience engagement. Through this project, Hadi will help his primary partner, the Hindustan Times, to attract new audiences and take advantage of new market opportunities. That model will be replicable at other news organizations. He is also building and strengthening media networks in India to establish closer ties and collaborations between journalists and technologists in that region.
