NPR Salutes News21 Multimedia

NPR's "The Picture Show" blog salutes the News21 multimedia project, which fosters investigative reporting and visual storytelling in journalism classrooms at eight universities nationwide.

Coburn Dukehart writes: "Many of the multimedia projects I’ve seen produced by News21 fellows shine in terms of the photojournalism, audio gathering, and multimedia storytelling."

NPR touts Spilling Over, a News 21 package produced at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, that was recently showcased on KobreGuide. It's the story of a Lousiana family facing tough choices due to the nearby BP oil spill that disrupts their entire fishing community.

NPR also recommends a Syracuse News21 production, "All That Lingers," the result of weeks spent with military veterans who've deliberately isolated themselves in the state of Washington.

All That Lingers - Apart From War from MPD - SI Newhouse School.

Spilling Over from Powering a Nation.
