Two new researchers to lead impact-driven research at Missouri School of Journalism’s Reynolds Journalism Institute


The Missouri School of Journalism is set to welcome two new research faculty and alums who will work with the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) to translate academic work into direct benefits for newsrooms around the country.
