The American Journalism Project is pleased to announce a new grant from the Indianapolis-based Lumina Foundation. The grant of $200,000 will provide general support for the American Journalism Project’s mission: to build a new public service media that is governed by, sustained by and looks like the public it serves.
Over the last year we’ve announced our first grants, started working closely with our grantees — and just last week introduced our first CEO, Sarabeth Berman, who is stepping into the big shoes that John Thornton created as our day-to-day leader for the last 14 months.
Today, the American Journalism Project (AJP) announced the selection of its first CEO, Sarabeth Berman. Berman will report to the AJP Board of Directors and will replace co-founder John Thornton as AJP’s day-to-day leader.
