While the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) held their 38th Annual National Convention in Orlando, Florida last week, The Cleveland Plain Dealer laid off one third of its newsroom staff. Last year The New Orleans’ Times-Picayune cut staff and is now published only three days a week. The impact of these cutbacks is embedded in the mounting evidence that social media, the Internet, cable news organizations and citizen journalism have revolutionized the face of journalism throughout the world.  

We’ll talk to NABJ Immediate Past President Greg Lee, Jr, newly installed President Bob Butler, Boston Chapter President Gary Washburn and Boston University Associate Professor Michelle Johnson to learn how these changes are affecting members of their association.

Regardless of how you get your news, the impact of these changes are significant to all communities across the world.  Today’s show will give insight into how African American journalists are adapting to an industry in transition.
