Participation in our 2019 Diversity Survey is CRUCIAL!

The American Society of News Editors calls on news organizations across the media spectrum to participate in this year's diversity survey, which incorporates revised design and data collection methodologies to better establish a quantitative view of the diversity status in America's newsrooms.
Why Diversity and Inclusion Matter
Why Diversity and Inclusion Matter

The purpose of the Newsroom Employment Diversity Survey, launched in 1978, is to document employment trends in U.S. print and online publications and help newsrooms reflect the growing diversity of their audiences. The survey measures progress toward ASNE's goal of having the percentage of minorities working in newsrooms nationwide equal to that of minorities in the nation's population by 2025.

Please take the time to complete the survey. Organizations that have not yet received a link to the survey should reach out to ASNE at diversityresearch@asne.org.

IN MEMORIAM

Le Anne Schreiber, 73, Dies; a First Among Sports Editors

Le Anne Schreiber, who became the first woman to run a major American daily newspaper's sports section when The New York Times appointed her to that position in 1978, died on Friday at a hospital in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She was 73.

Ms. Schreiber, who was later an ombudswoman for ESPN, was an untraditional choice to be The Times's sports editor: She had never covered sports for a daily newspaper, though she had gained some experience writing about the subject. She had reported for Time magazine from the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, prompting the tennis star and feminist Billie Jean King to name her editor of her magazine, womenSports.
