About Us


Student-powered News

When students walk into the Newmark J-School, they become staff reporters for the NYCity News Service, a multimedia outlet that feeds stories to professional news operations of all types and sizes. The News Service, which has earned more than 100 local and national journalism awards, also produces in-depth special reports.

In addition, students have opportunities to contribute to some of our other award-winning news platforms:

  • AudioFiles: Our fall-semester series of podcasts brings the sounds of the city to life.
  • 219WestTV: Our TV news magazine, which airs on CUNY TV, tells only-in-New York stories.
  • The Hunts Point Express and Mott Haven Herald: Our newspapers and websites cover the South Bronx neighborhoods of Hunts Point, Longwood, Mott Haven, Melrose and Port Morris.

Mission Statement

The Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York prepares students from a broad range of economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds to produce high-quality journalism at a time of rapid change.

We are rooted in the core skills and ethics of journalism: strong reporting and writing, critical thinking, fairness, and accuracy.

We teach new technologies and storytelling tools across media platforms to engage audiences and promote a broader democratic dialogue.

We serve our local and global news communities by sharing our reporting, research, and facilities.

We serve our profession by graduating skilled journalists, diversifying the voices in the media, and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship to help build a sustainable future for journalism.
