Bay News Rising

Professional and college reporters training collaboratively for the future of Bay Area journalism. Bay News Rising is a project of the Pacific Media Workers Guild made possible by the labor and contributions of its members.

Bay News Rising: Journalism’s Next Generation

Over the years, dozens of journalism students have been part of Bay News Rising. Many have gone on to careers at newspapers, broadcast outlets and Web sites. Some have played key roles in union organizing. Others have continued their education as graduate students or entered other professions. We are proud of all of them. These are just a few of our graduates; we’re working to make the list more complete. Not included here are the many Bay Area journalists who acted as mentors to our students and participated in professional workshops with us over the years. We thank them all.
