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.
