Carnegie Knight News-21 is a program that brings together some of the nation’s top journalism students to report and produce in-depth multimedia projects for major national media outlets. We had a chance to sit down and talk to the executive editor of News-21, Jacquee Petchel, and ASU graduate students, Justin Parham and Ashley Mackey, who both worked on the project “Hate In America”.
Students selected for the News21 program study a topic in-depth during a spring video-conferenced topics seminar, followed by a 10-week reporting fellowship during the summer. Students work out of a newsroom at the Cronkite School and travel the country – and sometimes to other countries – to report and produce their projects.
