The Knight Foundation has been helping fund advances in digital journalism. This grant is part of a $15 million outlay for investigative reporting.
The center says the money will enable it to hire a chief digital officer. In fact, it already has, John Solomon, whose resume includes investigative journalism at The Washington Post and Associated Press.
In addition, it says it will be able to test new for-profit revenue streams and fundraising models, give Web surfers more input on stories and launch the Ujima Project, an open source computer reporting tool.
