ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA — The Poynter Institute is an educational institution providing journalism training for students and professional development opportunities for working journalists and media leaders. It is also a hub for research and discussion about critical issues concerning the state of journalism. This grant will support a project to compile and analyze what is known about the audience for news. The Institute will identify scholarship and data about where people turn for news, how they access news, and how these patterns differ by demographics. It will make observations and recommendations about how the news industry might continue to nurture an informed citizenry.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Poynter Institute $35,000 between 2003 and 2013.
