A Sponsor For In-Depth Reporting On Critical Global Issues

With fewer newspapers still in business, and constrained budgets of those that remain, foundation and donor-supported organizations are seeking to fill the gap by sponsoring reporting trips to far-away places, producing stories that even top news media welcome. On this edition of Update-1, longtime Press Club member Irv Chapman interviews the executive editor of one prominent journalism organization, the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Indira Lakshmanan reported for the Boston Globe from Bosnia, China, Afghanistan and Latin America and still writes a foreign affairs column for the Globe. For eight years she was diplomatic correspondent for Bloomberg News. She describes the work of the Center, including its role in boosting the public trust in serious news media, and her own experiences, both at home and abroad.

Besides listening on Press.org, Update-1 can be found on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn by searching for "Update-1."
