Harvard's Nieman Foundation announces the 24 journalists in the Class of 2014

The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University has announced its 24-member class of 2014.

The group includes reporters, editors, columnists and producers for print, broadcast and online who work around the globe and across media platforms.

Nieman Foundation Curator Ann Marie Lipinski says the 12 U.S. and 12 international journalists are working to uphold the profession's highest standards while focused on innovations for radically shifting audiences, technologies and business models.

During their time on campus, the fellows study with some of the world's leading scholars and experts in disciplines ranging from business to law to public policy to the natural sciences. They also participate in a yearlong series of seminars, master classes and workshops and they work on collaborative projects with other fellows, Harvard faculty and others.
