The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute has awarded seven fellowships for the 2019-20 academic year with projects to improve gun violence reporting, expand solutions-based journalism by local TV stations, help large and small newsrooms get the most out of push notifications, customize audio documentaries through voice commands, measure the community impact of online stories and preserve digital content that's being lost.

"The institute is focusing on how to improve business prospects for community news, make practical use of new technologies and re-gain the public's trust," said RJI Executive Director Randy Picht. "Our new group of fellows addresses each of these missions with thoughtful and innovative proposals."
