What do you want in the revamped Knight electronic newsletter?


Editor’s note: Bud Meyer is Senior Communications Officer and Secretary of Knight Foundation. He asks below what you, our readers, want from a Knight newsletter.

Heads up, folks.

We’re sending out Knight News ‘ our revamped electronic newsletter ‘ this week, and we want to know what you think. It will make a monthly appearance and goes out to some 6,000 recipients.

We intend to offer a mix of stories and multimedia features. If you have ideas for future stories, send ’em my way: meyer at knightfoundation dot org.

KnightBlog readers know there’s an opportunity to check in frequently there to see what we’re up to. The newsletter links to the blog with some new features, including a 5 Questions interview by Lee Oglesby, communications intern, with News Challenge/Young Creator David Cohn about his novel approach to funding investigative journalism.

Knight News is also different because it responds to our readers. We surveyed a sample of newsletter readers and asked them what they wanted to see. They said: News about upcoming funding opportunities. So you’ll see Opportunities in the upper right corner detailing things in the pipeline.

We’re seeking comments, too, to make sure we’re connecting to readers and they to us.

No need to wait, though. What do you think?
