Arun Rath is NPR's new host of Weekend All Things Considered which airs Saturdays and Sundays at 5 pm on GPB Radio. Arun Rath’s career as a journalist spans more than two decades, but it had a surprising start. He has worked as a reporter, editor and producer in both public radio and television on programs including On the Media, Studio 360 and Frontline. He covered national security and military justice for Frontline and produced three films with the most recent looking into war crimes allegedly committed by U.S. Marines in Iraq.
The long-time publisher of the University of Georgia’s student newspaper, The Red and Black, issued a statement late Thursday about his decision to step down. Harry Montevideo and the paper’s board reached an agreement Wednesday that he would leave after 30 years at the helm.
CNN, Al Jazeera English and NPR all received the prestigious award Wednesday for their coverage of the movements that led to leaders being unseated in Egypt and Libya. Two Japanese news outlets won for their coverage of the deadly earthquake and tsunami.
The student-run Red & Black at the University of Georgia is the first high-profile college paper in the country to go “digital-first.” What used to be a daily printed newspaper is now primarily online, with a weekly print edition full of stories with more depth and a longer view. Students are also publishing a monthly glossy magazine.
Students at the University of Georgia cannot pick up their daily copy of the Red & Black student newspaper anymore. The publication has ditched a daily printed edition for an online-first strategy. The Red & Black still publishes a weekly printed copy on Thursdays. And students now also produce a monthly magazine with more in-depth stories. But for daily news, sports and features, you have to visit the paper’s website.
