The Online Journalism Review, run by the University of Annenburg’s journalism school, has been resurrected by the Knight Foundation’s Digital Media Center, Geneva Overholser, the university’s new director of the school of journalism, announced yesterday.
The site closed in its previous incarnation in June after 10 years of reporting on the ‘transition from other media to online reporting and production’ for mid-career journalists.
Major OJR contributor and media academic Robert Niles will continue to write for the new-look site, which will focus on the following:
- Reporting and writing in a conversational environment
- Investigative reporting in the internet era
- Entrepreneurial journalism
- ‘Guerilla-marketing’ the news
New articles will be added to the site twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays.
