New partnership supports newsroom diversity through paid editorial internship at Forbes

A partnership between the Newhouse School and Forbes has led to the establishment of a new internship for students in the magazine, news and digital journalism (MND) program.  

The paid editorial internship is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, with preference given to students from underrepresented groups. The student will spend 10-12 weeks this summer as a remote intern with the Forbes newsroom.

“We look forward to welcoming a talented Newhouse student this summer, and we are excited to enter into this partnership with the Newhouse School,” says Ali Jackson-Jolley, assistant managing editor at Forbes. “Newsrooms are best when they reflect different backgrounds, voices and points of views. It is only by supporting journalists of color that we can take on the lack of diversity in the media—and more specifically, in the newsroom—that leaves us vulnerable to making decisions while only ever hearing one perspective.” 

The Newhouse student will work in the editorial department as part of a class of prestigious Forbes interns. The interns are assigned to a beat—such as business, education, lifestyle or money—and work closely with an editor throughout the summer, gaining support and mentorship. Interns also take part in weekly presentations from Forbes leadership.  

“This collaboration with Forbes aligns with our goal of creating new opportunities for our students while at the same time elevating diversity among media outlets,” says Newhouse dean Mark J. Lodato. “We hope others will follow.”  

Job responsibilities may include pitching, reporting and writing stories for Forbes.com; conducting research related to rankings lists; creating photo galleries and infographics; fact-checking; managing social media campaigns and social engagement strategies; researching emerging trends and prospective contributors; attending industry events; and collaborating with Forbes staffers on special projects. 

Eligible students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and available to work in New York City from June to August. The ideal candidate will have an interest in business and entrepreneurship and an understanding of basic financial terms and figures, plus experience with campus publications or previous internships in journalism.  

Interested students are invited to attend a Zoom presentation with Jackson-Jolley today at 2 p.m. EST.  

To apply, students should submit a resume, three published clips and a cover letter detailing their interest in Forbes, what they can bring to the Forbes newsroom and how their identity/identities have informed their consumption of media and their work as a content creator and journalist.  

Students who plan to apply should notify Jessica Del Fuoco at jtarrats@syr.edu by Jan. 28. A Google Drive link will be provided for each applicant to upload application materials, which should be submitted to MND chair Melissa Chessher by Feb. 1 at 4:30 p.m.  

MND faculty will review applications and forward three names to Forbes. Virtual interviews may be conducted with the finalists.  

Forbes will announce the final selection Feb. 10.


WAER will transition to the Newhouse School this summer

Syracuse radio station WAER will become part of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, effective July 1. The announcement was made today by Newhouse dean Mark J. Lodato, WAER director and general manager Joe Lee and Kristian Klinger, associate vice president of Auxiliary Services.

“Bringing WAER into the fold with the Newhouse School will allow for significant growth of opportunities for Syracuse University students, both inside Newhouse and across campus,” Lodato says. “The station has a rich history of success, and it’s one we intend to foster.”

The station will benefit from more resources and support from the school, while maintaining its independence as a self-contained unit that meshes with the Newhouse mission. School and station leadership will collaborate to expand student opportunities in the areas of news, programming and promotion—all of which align with Newhouse curricula.

“For years WAER has served as a central training ground for Newhouse students interested in developing skills as journalists and broadcasters,” Lee says. “Merging with Newhouse will strengthen content creation and distribution for an enhanced student experience. It is a compelling move on multiple levels.”

WAER serves the greater Syracuse area with NPR and local news, eclectic music and SU sports. The station has long been the training ground of choice for aspiring broadcasters from the Newhouse School.

As many as 50 students can be found in the WAER newsroom each semester, covering stories and issues important to Central New York. The sports staff is entirely made up of students, who fill prominent play-by-play positions and also learn studio hosting, engineering and audio production. Lodato says the sports operation will remain independent, “and we’ll be close by to help.”

The move will also help strengthen WAER’s ties to the academic mission of the University, according to Klinger. “The Newhouse School and WAER already share a rich tradition of broadcast excellence and count many internationally-recognized broadcasters and on-air personalities among their alumni. This integration will build on that existing informal relationship and create a pipeline for student-produced content.”

Alumni sports broadcasters Bill Roth ’87, Mike Tirico ’88, Todd Kalas ’88 and Paul Peck ’87 at Veterans Stadium in the 1980s. Each began his career at WAER.

Founded at Syracuse University in 1947, the station has historical ties with the Newhouse School, and was once housed inside the Newhouse complex. Countless Newhouse alumni got their start in the industry through positions at WAER, including well-known broadcasters Lakshmi Singh ’94, Beth Mowins G’90, Mike Tirico ’88 and Bob Costas ’74.

WAER will continue to be housed in its current location at 795 Ostrom Ave. The station’s 12 professional staff members will become part of the Newhouse staff.

“The Miracle Microphone” is an award-winning documentary chronicling the history of WAER, produced by Newhouse alumnus Scott MacFarlane ’97.

Newhouse Insider: Essential Apps for Grad Students

As a Newhouse grad student, my phone and laptop are always within reach and I rely on them for almost everything from entertainment to completing coursework. Along the way, I’ve discovered a few apps that come in handy and really help make life easier, especially when I’m busy during the semester. Here are a few of my favorites that are getting me through. The best part: they’re all free to use, though most also have paid options with more advanced features.

Organization: Todoist

I found Todoist soon after I moved to Syracuse last fall, and it quickly became my favorite organizational app. It puts everything all in one place: meeting reminders, due dates and notes that can be organized by topic (work and school, for example), among other features. The interface can seem overwhelming at first, but it is intuitive and feels effortless to use once you integrate your email and see your information displayed clearly within the app. Some folks may prefer using a physical planner to manage their responsibilities, but having everything synced and viewable between my phone, laptop and smartwatch works best for me.

Fitness: Down Dog Yoga

Since I’ve been spending so much time at home during the pandemic, I’ve made it a priority to take breaks and move my body more. One way of doing so that I’ve discovered is practicing yoga. There are a ton of free yoga videos on YouTube, but I found an app called Down Dog that I love. Down Dog normally has an annual fee, but due to the pandemic the developers have made the app free until at least July if you sign up with a .edu email address. Down Dog has other apps for HIIT and barre workouts that are also free to use, but I’ve been loving the Yoga app because it has tons of customization options for choosing music and your level of experience/desired difficulty. It also generates a new movement sequence every time you use it, so you’re never doing the same workout twice. As a total yoga novice, this app makes me look forward to practicing.

Cooking: NYT Cooking

Another hobby I’ve been exploring during the pandemic is cooking, so I’m always looking for new dishes to try as I get more confident. I’ve been taking advantage of the New York Times subscription we get as Syracuse students, and discovered that the cooking section is full of awesome recipes as well as guides and tips for any level of experience. When I found out NYT Cooking has a separate app, I knew I had to try it out. NYT Cooking recipes are clear and easy to follow, and organizing your favorites in the app is a breeze so you can always come back to them. You can also create a grocery list within the app, which is perfect for when you want to try out a new recipe. I also recommend checking out the instructional videos and reading the commentary of other users on the recipes; I’ve learned so much through this!

These are some of my essential apps for getting through grad school. Hopefully they can help you too!

Newhouse Insider: The Best Seat in the House

Talha Rao

Grad life can be pretty sweet. Do not get me wrong, the first semester did a pretty good job of kicking my behind, but it was all worth it. Now I am on a much-needed break from classes. I have decided to stay in Syracuse to attend as many basketball games as possible from press row.

Experience matters. Like I have said in blogs before, learning is essential for growth but applying what you learn is necessary to complete the growth process. And that is precisely what you are witnessing in the photo above. Thanks to my internship with Sports Illustrated at Syracuse, which I was able to pursue because of the Sports Media and Communications Track as part of the Broadcast and Journalism program offered by Newhouse, I was sitting alongside some of the best sportswriters like Mike Waters of Syracuse.com. One thing I always make sure to do is to greet people of such stature. Get on their radar, ask them questions, and show up to every single game possible.

My responsibilities? Watch college basketball at one of the most renowned basketball sights in the country (the Carrier Dome), keep a live update of the game on social media and write a few post-game articles. Along with that, I attend a press conference immediately following the game and write a story based on what the coaches and players discuss.

This is all new to me, and I am enjoying every second of it. The good thing about it is wherever I end up working in the future, I can use this unparalleled experience as a catapult to my career.

So, at the end of the day, going to class matters a ton, but what you do outside of the classroom will determine how much you want to do whatever it is you say you want to do. You see, in the moment of heat (or excitement), we all say things that we may not feel like doing later, so make sure you are one of those folks who “walk the talk,” not just “talk the walk.”

Once you are at Syracuse University, there will be plenty of opportunities to take advantage of. Pick and choose the ones that apply to your career and dive in head-first. Make all the mistakes now as a student, so you are well prepared for the ‘real world’ once you leave Newhouse.

Photography student earns Hearst Award honor

A video created by junior photography student Cole Strong took 12th place out of 90 entries in the Hearst Journalism Awards program’s Multimedia Narrative Storytelling Competition.

The video, “Chasing the Dragon,” was produced for The NewsHouse, the Newhouse School’s student-run multimedia news site. It tells the story of Newhouse assistant professor Ulf Oesterle’s quest to make the Paralympics. Oesterle teaches in the Bandier Program.

Future of news production the focus of NSF planning grant

Two researchers from Syracuse University are part of a team that received a $130,000 planning grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier.

The project, “Planning to study automation and the future of news production,” brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to look at the impact of technology on journalists and journalism.

Kevin Crowston
Crowston

Kevin Crowston, distinguished professor of information science and associate dean for research at the School of Information Studies, is principal investigator. Keren Henderson, assistant professor of broadcast and digital journalism at the Newhouse School, is also part of the team. Other team members include Jeffrey Nickerson, professor at Stevens Institute of Technology’s School of Business, and Lydia Chilton, assistant professor of computer science at Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science.

“The future work of journalists is great topic for our study because journalism has long been shaped by new technologies, from the printing press to the telephone to TV to the web, but guided by strong professional norms and values,” Crowston says. “We’re looking forward to understanding how this interplay shapes the use of smarter machines that can share part of the work.”

Keren Henderson

Henderson is conducting a qualitative case study of a large market local television newsroom. “Under which circumstances do local television journalists embrace technological innovations to improve their ability to inform the public, including professional storytelling across platforms?” Henderson asks.

“Journalists today are understandably concerned about how automation is used as a means of replacing human workers,” says Henderson. “Our team is approaching this research with the journalists’ best interests in mind. We want to help members of the Fourth Estate to do their best work.”  

The planning grant supports the researchers as they develop a proposal for sustained research on the future of news production that may be supported by a large-scale grant from NSF. Their work would consider technologies such as natural language processing, crowdsourcing, information visualization and artificial intelligence. The planned work includes refining the project vision and theoretical framework, recruiting field sites and an advisory board, conducting pilot research to identify relevant technologies and impacts and planning of convergent research activities.

Buffalo Studios CEO Matt Fleckenstein ’00: ‘Start making things right now’

Matt Fleckenstein '00
Matt Fleckenstein

When Matt Fleckenstein ’00 wanted to produce a live-action series outside of Los Angeles, he realized there was potential in his hometown of Buffalo, where he knew there were large buildings and factories that could be converted into sound stages. That’s when the idea for Buffalo Studios, a full-spectrum film and animation studio, was born.

Right now, Buffalo Studios is in Phase 1 of development, with six sound stages and office space currently being developed on a vacant 27-acre lot that once housed a steel mill. The studios will be state-of-the-art facilities with support for all aspects of production, including VR, VFX and virtual production. Groundbreaking is slated for late spring, with a tentative completion date of late 2022.

Fleckenstein’s professional credits include writing and producing for multiple Kids’ and Family  shows, including “iCarly,” “Clifford the Big Red Dog” and the show he created for Nickelodeon, “Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.” Recently, we asked him about his journey from Los Angeles back to Western New York.

Have you always wanted to work in television and film?
My whole life, I’ve only ever wanted to do two things… to write and to own a business. Where I am now, my career is the intersection of those two things. Inevitably, if you’re successful enough in your writing and lucky to be able to climb to a certain level of success, you become a producer as well. There are certain writers who don’t really enjoy that, but I do. I like working on budgets, helping new writers to develop scripts and finding locations and coming up with creative solutions to make a production come together. So yes, it was always percolating there somewhere.

How has the pandemic impacted some of your projects?

I’ve been developing more animated projects because animation has always had a bit of a remote working element to it. There was a few-week hiccup [when the pandemic struck last March], but then animated shows shifted to fully remote and just kept on going. So, animation has adjusted well to the current climate. And that’s what the buyers have been focused on. At the same time, live-action is still pretty stalled.
I’ve been waiting  months on a green light for a show I have at Apple. I should be maybe 10 episodes into producing it, instead I’m waiting for production to come back in full. [The pandemic has] also brought new challenges to getting Buffalo Studios together, but we’ve adapted and adjusted and we’re still on a great track to break ground in the spring.

What is one valuable lesson you learned at Newhouse that helped you get to where you are?

Professor [Evan] Smith said to us, “You better know how to make a cup of coffee.” Of course, when I moved to LA, my first job was making coffee and picking up lunches, and it wasn’t a shock because I was prepared for that. I was very glad that I had that grounded perspective in my education.

What advice would you give current students who want to work in the industry?

Start making things right now. Don’t wait. If you’re a writer, great. Find a director, find someone who wants to do costumes, find theater students who want to be actors. The best thing you can do is practice and make things. That’s number one. Number two is, unless you have some great job waiting for you in New York or Los Angeles, either stay in Syracuse and continue to make stuff once you graduate or go back home where you have a support system and a place you can live for free and just work on your craft. To me, that’s invaluable. If I could go back, I probably [would have] stayed in Syracuse longer. It was affordable, I had friends and could have continued to make things. spend a couple of years making things. Maybe by the time you graduate or a year or two afterwards, you make that independent project that goes online and it blows up, and you don’t have to uproot your whole life.

What is your vision of the future for film production outside of Hollywood?

To me, the most exciting change over the past 10-15 years is the democratization of content creation. Anyone from anywhere in the world can build a YouTube channel and make a living, without dealing with the gatekeepers. I think it’s amazing, and there are so many stories and talented people around the world who now have a voice for their work.

Brown research on deepfakes published

Nina Iacono Brown, assistant professor of communications, published the paper “Deepfakes and the Weaponization of Disinformation” in the Journal of Law and Technology at the University of Virginia Law School. The article was judged one of the best law review articles related to entertainment, publishing and/or the arts published that year and selected for inclusion in the 2020 edition of the Entertainment, Publishing and the Arts Handbook, an anthology published annually by Thomson Reuters (West).

Luttrell research on social and digital media practice in public relations education accepted for presentation

Associate dean of research and creative activity and assistant professor of public relations Regina Luttrell‘s research, “Connecting Pedagogy to Industry: Social and Digital Media Practice as Research in Public Relations Education,” has been accepted for presentation at the  International Public Relations Research Conference (IPRRC) this March.
