Courier Eco Latino Newspaper Selected to the 2024 Digital Natives Program

Through the Digital Natives program, a University of Georgia journalism student with digital
news expertise will connect with the Courier Eco Latino newsroom to help their staff
accomplish 1-2 specific goals, such as launching or improving a social media account or email
newsletter, creating digital content, experimenting with a new product, increasing audience
engagement, combatting disinformation, or applying Trusting News concepts.

The student will work with the newsroom starting in November to do research and create a
plan for training. Then, the student will spend one week at the news organization — Jan. 2-5,
2024 — to learn, train, and implement strategies for the company’s goals. The students will
receive a $1,000 stipend for their work, and their travel, hotel, and food costs are covered by a
generous gift from Richard T. and Debbie H. Griffiths. Digital Natives is part of the Journalism
Innovation Lab in the Cox Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management & Leadership.

According to Janell Williams, Editor-in-Chief of the Courier Eco Latino, “We understand that the
dynamics of news consumption is changing. As we continue to grow and expand our publication
digitally, we welcome the assistance we will receive from the Grady College of Journalism and
Mass Communication”.
