Home / MOME Supports Community and Ethnic Media with $1 Million Grant


Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) Commissioner Julie Menin and CUNY Graduate School of Journalism (J-School) Dean Sarah Bartlett announced on June 27 that MOME will grant $1 million to the J-School to create new programs to help New York City’s community and ethnic media outlets stay competitive in the current media landscape, and bring them further into the digital age. This funding will allow a major expansion of training opportunities for journalists working at these publications, which have an enormous readership and are of vital importance to communities around the city. In addition, the J-School’s broadcast facilities will be officially renamed the “Made in NY Broadcast Center” in recognition of MOME’s commitment to this important element of New York’s media sector.
