“Learning skills, surviving the crisis” is a free series of remote trainings by the Center for Community Media at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY for the National Federation of Community Broadcasters.
The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on communities and making the job of broadcast journalists a lot more difficult at a time when they are needed most. With this series, specially designed for the NFCB, we offer training relevant to weathering this crisis.
Trainings are provided at no cost to community media organizations and all stations are welcome to attend, whether they are NFCB members or not.

The Center for Community Media (CCM) of CUNY’s Newmark Graduate School of Journalism builds the capacity of news organizations that provide essential local coverage for populations whose voices and issues are underrepresented in “mainstream” media. CCM serves as an essential hub of information, resources and training aimed at increasing the sustainability of this media sector.
Founded in 1978, the National Federation of Community Broadcasters is positioned as the leading national organization dedicated to supporting and nurturing agency among community radio stations, inviting diverse community voices, stories, culture and connections, as an essential service to a resilient, democratic, and healthy society.
