Our Lot Author Alyssa Katz to Launch Online Newspaper at Columbia U.

Posted under Industry News on July 21, 2011

Our Lot author Alyssa Katz will join the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism this summer to launch and edit The New York World, a news outlet staffed by J school graduates. With her arrival at Columbia, Katz ends a four-year stint as senior fellow for policy and communications at the Pratt Center for Community Development.

In a statement, Katz defined this new project as “cutting-edge accountability journalism on government in New York and all the realms it touches.” Of note is that the online newspaper’s title is an homage to New York World, published by Joseph Pulitzer.
