Nieman News

Maria Balinska, NF ’10, received a $20,000 grant from the International Women’s Media Foundation to launch an online international news service. In Nieman Reports she wrote about why she was leaving her long-held job as editor of World Current Affairs Radio at the BBC to take on the risky role of a digital entrepreneur. In foreign reporting, she said, “It’s past time to expand its focus [beyond governmental priorities]—to welcome the grass-roots perspectives of ordinary people.”
