Paula Moura ’18 has joined the PBS investigative documentary show FRONTLINE as the 2021 enterprise journalism fellow.
The yearlong fellowship is funded by The Tow Foundation for a graduate of the Newmark J-School. During her tenure, Moura will collaborate with FRONTLINE’s reporters, producers, and digital media creators, contributing reporting across platforms to the documentary and podcast series.
“We look forward to continuing our enterprise journalism fellowship with the Newmark J-School and are delighted to welcome Paula to our team,” said Raney Aronson-Rath, FRONTLINE’s executive producer. “We remain grateful to The Tow Foundation for their generous support and their dedication to bolstering our investigative reporting capacity.”
“We are delighted that another of our talented alumni has the opportunity to work closely with a news organization as outstanding as FRONTLINE, thanks to the support of The Tow Foundation,” said Sarah Bartlett, dean of the Newmark J-School.
Moura previously worked as a producer for The New York Times on the investigative video “The Amazon is Still Burning. Blame Beef,” which received a 2020 Award of Excellence from Pictures of the Year (POYi). She has also reported for ProPublica, The Washington Post, NPR, WNYC, Latino USA, The Atlantic, and Foreign Policy.
While at the Newmark J-School, Moura concentrated in international reporting with a focus on Brazil, Latin America, and the Latin American diaspora. Her work has been published in major Brazilian news outlets, and she has worked as a reporter in Japan.
