Modern day journalists need to be able to do everything. Journalism schools across the country are realizing this, however the process to change is slow, which is why they need outside help. Which is why the Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism has awarded me and nine other colleagues grants to learn new skills that would make us successful journalists. I was awarded a grant to learn video while working at Mission Loc@l, a hyper local site conceived the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism and the Ford foundation. This blog would chronicle my progress and updates from the multimedia front in journalism.
