Cronkite professor launches blog on journalism business and ethics

September 26, 2007

Tim J. McGuire, the Frank Russell Chair for the Business of Journalism at Arizona State University, is launching a blog on the business of journalism and media ethics.


McGuire, the former editor of the Minneapolis Star Tribune and past president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, joined the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication as the Russell Chair in August 2006.


He will write two to three times a week on trends in the newspaper and media business and reflect on his efforts to convey the challenges of the rapidly changing news industry to tomorrow’s journalists.


“Tim McGuire draws on his years of experiences as a national newsroom leader to provide invaluable insights into the news business,” said Cronkite Dean Christopher Callahan. “His analyses are blunt and realistic about the serious problems facing the news industry today, yet he retains a thoughtful optimism and belief that smart, passionate and dedicated people can help find solutions to these very real problems.


“I have no doubt his blog will quickly become a ‘must read’ for news industry leaders around the country.”


The blog, “McGuire on Media,” is available at:
