David E. Hudson Speaks at Mercer’s Dedication for the New Center for Collaborative Journalism

In 2011, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Peyton Anderson Foundation awarded $4.6 million in grants to launch a journalism collaborative involving Mercer University, The Macon Telegraph, which is Georgia’s third-largest daily newspaper, and Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB), the third-largest public broadcster in the country based on population reach.

This Center for Collaborative Journalism at Mercer University seeks to engage Mercer students and faculty and the news staffs of The Telegraph and GPB in innovative journalism that advances journalistic excellence in the digital age and contributes to a more informed, engaged Central Georgia community. The new center will create one of largest journalism/community projects in Georgia history and be a model for higher education/media collaborations in other cities.
