Part of our mission statement is to create a dialogue between journalists so that they can better understand the disruption that’s occurring in our industry right now and come up with ways to be more successful.
Our approach is to interview working journalists about how they do their jobs and hear what lessons they’ve learned. Our goal is to help journalists do what they do best, i.e., report the news in a new, digital world.
We are not alone on our road of discovery. Others share our mission.
A forum about innovation in journalism beyond the usual suspects, that’s how Journalism Accelerator defines itself. The JA creates conversation among communities in search of new, sustainable models for journalism. The startup hosts online discussions, curates resources that offer practical application, connects people, and tracks ideas and emerging practices in the field. Everything is done with an eye to helping publishers thrive at this time of massive disruption in the industry.
Lisa Skube is the founder of Journalism Accelerator. Emily Harris is the editorial director for the website. They spoke with It’s All Journalism Producer Michael O’Connell about how they’re facilitating the dialogue between publishers, journalists and business professionals to preserve something vital to our democracy — a free, independent and self-sustaining press.
