IRE selects 8 newsrooms for latest Total Newsroom Training cohort

Eight newsrooms will receive custom, grant-funded watchdog training in the coming year through IRE’s Total Newsroom Training program.

Total Newsroom Training provides two days of intensive, personalized training for small and medium-sized newsrooms dedicated to watchdog journalism. This is the 11th year Investigative Reporters and Editors has offered the program, and will reach the milestone of 100 newsrooms trained under TNT in 2024.

"The fundamental mission of IRE is to provide the best in data analysis and investigative journalism training, providing a thriving network of like-minded journalists for year round collaboration to help improve the quality of our industry," said IRE Executive Director Diana R. Fuentes. "TNT helps us accomplish our mission. The graduates of TNT workshops have gone on to produce stories that have changed laws and changed lives in the communities they serve. It is democracy in action, and we are proud to be a part of that."

TNT newsroom training is based on the specific needs of each individual newsroom and includes sessions ranging from how to successfully handle public records battles to hands-on learning of spreadsheets and programming to topic-focused training such as best practices in covering education, law enforcement and underrepresented communities.

This year’s newsrooms were chosen from a record number of applicants.

The selected newsrooms have a wide range of specialties and talents, ranging from bilingual coverage of Bay Area immigrant communities, to national LGBTQ+ issues, climate change and more.
