Traveling and reporting all around the world taught me that the great ideas that people use everywhere can come from anywhere.
As director of ICFJ’s flagship Knight Fellowships, I am always looking for journalists with a big idea that will help change the way we report, analyze and share our news. Innovation is not always about the shiny, new technology – it can be a new way of thinking about an old way of doing things. The ICFJ Knight Fellowships help support a global network of journalists who drive news innovation and experimentation worldwide.
My background: My experience as a Los Angeles Times foreign correspondent, American University adjunct professor, and Google News Initiative Teaching Fellow helps support that journalistic innovation. I understand what it takes to deeply report a story, engage a news community, fight misinformation and use tech tools for compelling storytelling.
Ask me about: Email me if you have an innovative idea, collaboration proposal – or just want to chat about dogs, skiing and good chocolate.
