Spotlight newsroom: Poynter Online

Oct 28, 2014

Today the spotlight falls on one of our favorite resources and every journalist's best friend: Poynter Online, the online publishing arm of the nonprofit journalism school Poynter Institute. Based in St. Petersburg, Poynter offers free self-directed courses, live Webinars and other valuable tools. The most highly followed journalist there is Andrew Beaujon, Media Blogger, followed by Seth Liss, Digital Editor; Kristen Hare, Online Reporter; Sam Kirkland, Digital Media Fellow; and Ben Mullin, Fellow. This morning their highest trending piece is one by Kristen Hare: "CJR: In almost all cases, journalists are still being killed with no consequences," with 39 shares thus far. Meanwhile, their most active journo on Twitter at the moment is Ben Mullin! Thanks for all you do, Poynter folks!
