Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism

The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism has trained more than 22,000 journalists and educators since it was established in 2003 with the goal of improving the quality of media coverage of business and the economy.

The center offers training in person and online and sponsors a variety of other initiatives, including the national Barlett & Steele Awards for Investigative Business Journalism, which recognizes the best in business reporting each year, and the annual Reynolds Business Journalism Week, which provides intensive training for journalists and professors interested in developing their business journalism skills.

The center’s National Visiting Business Journalists Program has placed business journalism professionals in journalism programs across the country to encourage the teaching of business journalism. And at the Cronkite School, the center leads a Business Journalism Specialization for students interested in pursuing business journalism careers.

The center’s staff and affiliated faculty offer on-the-ground training seminars and workshops at many of the major journalism organization conferences each year to help reporters be better prepared to cover the economics angle on any beat. A daily newsletter offers tips on finding the business angle in the news of the day, a Business Beat Basics eBook provides expert advice to beat reporters, an email course provides an introduction to covering financials and the center’s website offers a rich selection of training materials. Other training is delivered via podcasts and webinars.

The center is headquartered at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University and is led by nationally syndicated investment columnist and CNBC anchor Andrew Leckey, who serves as president, and Kristin Gilger, the Cronkite School’s associate dean, who serves as director, in charge of day-to-day operations and strategy.

The Reynolds Center is supported by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, a Las Vegas philanthropic organization founded in 1954. The foundation has provided major support to educational institutions and other nonprofit organizations in the areas of journalism, cardiovascular clinical research and aging and quality of life. The foundation has distributed $1.8 billion in grants since 1994.
