Newmark J-school welcomes John Thornton as Senior Fellow


The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY has appointed John Thornton as our inaugural Senior Fellow. 

Thornton is a leader in non-profit news and the future of local journalism. He founded the Pulitzer prize-finalist Texas Tribune, the first statewide nonprofit and nonpartisan online news organization, in 2008. His vision of a nonprofit model for news and his extraordinary fundraising ability revolutionized the U.S. local media landscape. 

As Senior Fellow, Thornton will bring industry insights and expertise to support the school in its position as a leader in journalism education, at a time in which we are moving toward a tuition-free model. Thornton will also teach a master class focused on nonprofit journalism and the business of news and information.
