Professional Journalists Want U.S. Newsroom Experience
WANTED:  Television and radio stations are needed to mentor a Russian journalist and allow them to shadow in your news room for one-and-a half to three weeks beginning November 29 through December 19. 

The International Center for Journalism (ICTJ) covers the program cost and offers it in cooperation with the Union of Journalists of Moscow.  The program entitled "The Young Media Professionals Exchange Program" is underwritten through a grant from the Knight Foundation.

The young media professionals will also need housing accommodations and the program offers host families a total of $600.00 for the three weeks or $200.00 a week. The journalists have their own funds for food and transportation. The station accepting the foreign journalist will need to find a host family for accommodations.

The ICTJ is looking for up to four TV stations and two Radio stations to volunteer for this international opportunity.  The journalist all speak English and are excited to work with Michigan broadcasters.  Enrich your newsroom with the experience of a foreign journalist.
