Home / New York City’s Ethnic Media in the Digital Age


The Center for Community and Ethnic Media released a new study on the subject of the opportunities and challenges that the internet presents to ethnic media producers across New York City on Dec. 8, 2016, at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. 

Dr. Matthew Matsaganis, principal investigator of the study, shared key findings based on a survey of more than 100 ethnic media outlets and numerous follow-up interviews with ethnic media producers. The report offers a detailed look at how the ethnic media sector in NYC is adopting technological innovations, what challenges these media face in incorporating new communication technologies into their everyday professional practices, and ideas about how to address these challenges successfully.
