Since the program's founding in 1977, nearly 2,000 aspiring journalists have graduated from NJC's 12-week internship program. We estimate some 900 of these work in media and media-related positions at organizations such as The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, C-SPAN, Time, Newsweek, The New Yorker, Harper's Esquire, National Geographic, Reader's Digest, Wired, Forbes, AP, UPI, Dow Jones Newswire, Bloomberg News Service, and hundreds more. In addition, NJC alumni have written more than 100 books among them, many of which developed from projects at the NJC.
Our hope is to have still greater an impact in the future. In 2001, NJC became a project of Young America's Foundation and celebrated its 30th anniversary in late 2007. The National Journalism Center hosted its largest class ever--40 interns--in the summer 2008 session.more » « less
