Ayers Chair Professor Named 2005 RTNDF Educator Fellow
WASHINGTON— Terasha A. King, Ayers Chair professor in
the Jacksonville State University College of Education and Professional
Studies, has been named a 2005 Educator in the Newsroom Fellow by the
Radio and Television News Directors Foundation. Her host station is
WHNT-TV in Huntsville, Alabama.
Now in its sixth year, EIN Fellowships place broadcast
journalism professors in radio or television newsrooms for a month-long
work experience each summer. The educators get hands-on experience and
training in current practices, new technologies, and issues confronting
today's journalists. News managers benefit from fresh perspectives on
daily newsroom practices and an extra set of knowledgeable eyes, ears,
and hands during the summer. Students benefit as well when their professors
return to the classroom with a firsthand view of what skills news directors
will demand for that first job.
For six years the Educator in the Newsroom project has
been generously funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
