Recent grad covering news in Cairo

Within days of graduating from the JSchool at the end of the summer, Heather Moore was on a plane to Cairo. Her goal was to freelance stories about Egyptian women.

Moore caught the international reporting bug during her days on campus.
Against the advice of concerned friends and family members, she set off on her path for Egypt at the peak of the Arab Spring movement.

Since her arrival in Cairo nearly six months ago, she has traveled throughout the region, studied Arabic, and yes, begun covering stories about issues facing Egyptian women.

February 14, 2012 | comments (0) gets top-to-bottom makeover

A long-time portal site for news and information related to Athens, Ohio has just gotten a major face-lift, thanks to online journalism student Lauren Hutchison.

More than a decade ago we launched (pronounced “Athens-eye-dot-com”) to gather up onto one web platform news and information from various local media outlets. In the early years, this process involved a lot of cut-and-paste, but all of that changed when RSS technology made it possible for us to subscribe to various feeds. The automation of RSS meant that could work 24-7, but it also meant that we didn’t have much control over the look and feel of the site. Until now.
