"Our cover story, ’12 to Watch in TV News,’ looks at some journalists and other media professionals who are making a difference, and some of the people who hire them; many are old hands in TV news, including Jeff Zucker, whose foray to CNN lands him on the list."
So says the editor of this month’s NewsPro, Jarre Fees.
Fees continues, saying: "The list includes some up-and-comers and more than a few risk takers, and all of them are helping shape what we watch, and when and why."
Fees adds: "In this NewsPro we also take a look at the state of journalism awards. Many organizations, like the Online News Association and the Pulitzer Prizes, are recognizing the value of technology to help tell the award-winning stories we watch and read — stories that enlighten and entertain and enrich the public, many of them moving across platforms unheard of a decade ago.
"We look at a few important fellowships and research how to get a grant; we pinpoint foundations and other organizations that continue to recognize and reward initiative and creativity and sometimes fund an entire journalism career."
