NABJ commits $1,000 to APSE’s Diversity Fellowship Program Jan. 30, 2013

By Jorge Rojas,
Chair, APSE Diversity Committee
Sports Editor, Miami Herald

The National Association of Black Journalists has committed a $1,000 sponsorship to APSE's Diversity Fellowship Program, joining the Association for Women in Sports Media, Digital First Media, the USA Today Sports Media Group, The Sporting News and U-T San Diego as gold-level sponsors of APSE's sports journalism management training program for women and editors of color.


APSE is the major sponsor of the program. Indiana University, which hosts a weekend of academic training, also is a sponsor.

The Diversity Fellowship Program was launched in 2011 by APSE. It is a nine-month training program designed to prepare mid-career journalists to join or advance in management of sports journalism. The first class of Fellows graduated at APSE's summer conference in Chicago in June and included Ed Guzman, who recently accepted a position as an assistant sports editor at the Seattle Times, and Adena Andrews, who recently accepted a writing position with CBSSports.com.


This year's class features Tony Adame of the Wichita Eagle, Peter Fuertes of the Los Angeles News Group, Monica Holland of the Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer, and Michael Wallace of ESPN/ESPN.com. All are participating at winter judging in Orlando. Fuertes was recently promoted to chief of the sports copy desk at LANG's Content Center.
