The Poynter Institute and Gannett announced jointly Thursday a partnership to train the news organization’s journalists, which number in the thousands.
The training, designed to help Gannett achieve its much-discussed push to create “newsrooms of the future” across its news properties, is the largest corporate partnership in Poynter’s 39-year-history.
