CUNY Journalism School to Receive $1 Million Grant from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment

CUNY New York

NEW YORK CITY (TIP): NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) Commissioner Julie Menin and J-School Dean Sarah Bartlett will hold a press event on Monday, June 27 at 12:00 Noon at the City University of New York’s CUNY Graduate School of Journalism (CUNY J-School) in Manhattan, to announce a $1 million grant from MOME to the CUNY J-School to help New York’s vast network of community and ethnic media outlets stay competitive in the current media landscape, and bring them further into the digital age.

Combined circulation of these daily and weekly publications reaches 4.5 million people — more than half of the city’s population — yet many of these outlets struggle to survive in a world of tech-driven journalism. The grant will allow the CUNY J-School’s Center for Community and Ethnic Media to create new, affordable courses in subjects such as social media, video storytelling, podcasting, and broadcast techniques. The CUNY J-School’s broadcast facility will also be renamed the “Made in NY Broadcast Center” in recognition of MOME’s support of the school and commitment to local and ethnic media.
