NPR shifts some newsroom roles as work continues on a multi-year effort to develop its Collaborative Journalism Network, which will connect NPR staff with staff at local member stations across the country through regional hubs. The hubs will serve as localized command centers when breaking news hits as well as a way to increase resources for local newsrooms across the country.
NPR executive editor Edith Chapin, who had been responsible for overseeing the news division, will now be devoting her time to the collaborative journalism project, focusing on “the strategy and execution of our collaborative journalism aspirations and editorial partnerships,” according to senior vice president of news and editorial director Michael Oreskes.
