‘Frontline’ EP calls for creation of Journalism Fund

“Frontline” EP David Fanning was presented the 18th annual Fred Friendly First Amendment Award by Quinnipiac University today.

During his acceptance speech, Fanning called for the creation of a Public Journalism Fund with support from foundations, individuals, major donors and public money to hire the best journalists possible. “And make sure to bring in with them a new generation of young reporters who ared used to the daily demands, the drumbeat of reporting in the digital world,” Fanning said. “If we do this smartly, we will get a lot of attention. Public broadcasting will immediately become more relevant to the national conversation, attract some of the best talents in journalism, and capture a key piece of the journalism landscape.”
