As newsrooms have downsized, as more work has been piled on more reporters covering more beats, as more journalism education organizations have levied fees for their training, we’ve changed with the times but continued our policy of never charging a dime.
Josh Stearn’s partnered with PBS MediaShift to spread some wisdom on why non-profit journalism organizations matter, in his campaign Give4News. Consider supporting the National Press Foundation if you participated in one of our many free programs or used the resources we provide.
Joseph L. Allbritton, the media magnate and banker who died December 12 at age 87, was an early and anonymous supporter of the National Press Foundation. He may well have kept NPF afloat. Read NPF President, Bob Meyers’ recollection of Joe’s contribution.
This event will feature two longtime friends of the National Press Foundation, Austin Kiplinger and Don Larrabbe.
From the Writer’s Center:
On Saturday, December 17th, The Writer’s Center is proud to honor Austin H. Kiplinger with a Life-time Achievement in Journalism Award.
Mr. Kiplinger, a distinguished author and publisher, will discuss his perspectives gained from more than five decades as a reporter, broadcast commentator, and editor focusing primarily on business and political affairs, as well as his active involvement in civic and cultural affairs. Much of which he details in his latest novel, Letter From Washington. The program will be moderated by the accomplished and respected journalist, Don Larrabee, past president of the National Press Club.
