Tom Fiedler, former editor of The Miami Herald, is among four fellows who will take part in projects at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy at Harvard University this fall.
Fiedler, a Goldsmith Fellow, will examine the impact of ‘new media’ on the 2008 presidential campaign, according to a press release.
Other fellows include:
Geoffrey Cowan, a professor and former dean of the University of Southern California?s Annenberg School for Communication, who will examine “new business models for the news industry.”
Tuan Nguyen, the Shorenstein Center?s Sagan Fellow, who is chairman of VietnamNet Media Group and the editor in chief of VietnamNet, an online news site. He will examine “key trends in the development of electronic media in Vietnam.”
Robin Sproul, a Kalb Fellow, who is Washington bureau chief for ABC News. She will investigate “an economic and editorial model for the future of exit polling.”
“This semester’s distinguished group of fellows and visiting faculty spans the news gamut, from traditional newspaper and television news to the cutting edge of new media,? Alex S. Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center, said in a statement.
