Since its launch in 1998, OJR has established itself as a publication that has “thoughtful, in-depth reporting and commentaries on the changing media landscape,” said Editor Brian Frank. The new website, however, has a “fresh look and even more of the content you’ve come to trust.”
The first article posted by OJR since the revamped website went live on Feb. 25 was an op-ed by Journalism Director Geneva Overholser about the importance of public interest when covering the recent issue of gun control.
“Our intent and goal is to make sure OJR continues to be a strategic voice in the national conversation and dialogue about digital journalism,” said USC Annenberg Journalism Professor Marc Cooper in a story on the USC Annenberg website. “That’s the important role that OJR can and does play.”
