Apple News Partners With Association to Boost Young Black Journalists

This is a new fellowship program aimed to propel minorities' careers

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is partnering with Apple News on an editorial fellowship to give young journalists the opportunity to work at the forefront of news and technology. The program will introduce early-career Black journalists to several key editorial areas, followed by a more focused mentorship with Apple News staff members, culminating in an end-of-year presentation to the entire Apple News editorial team.

"It is a really exciting time to be a journalist," said Dorothy Tucker, NABJ's president. "This partnership is just one of the many opportunities that are available, and we are happy to embrace it."

Apple News reached out to NABJ with the offer for association members. In addition to providing an opportunity for young journalists, the alliance will broaden the journalistic perspectives at Apple News and enrich its news coverage, Tucker said.
