2 from Columbia Daily Tribune visit Ukraine to teach news management

Managing editor Jim Robertson and web editor David Farre of the Columbia Daily Tribune visited April 11-19
at the newspaper Molodyy Bukovynetsin in Chernivtsi, Ukraine.
The program, sponsored by the International Research & Exchanges Board and funded by the Media Development Fund of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, matches U.S. newspapers with Ukrainian partners for training of journalists in the former Soviet republic’s emerging free-press environment.
Aided by interpreters, Robertson and Farre led sessions on newsroom organization and management, story
development and selection, website development and other newsroom topics.
As part of the program, two Ukrainian journalists from Molodyy Bukovynetsin will visit the Tribune for a week in June.
In September, members of the Tribune marketing and advertising departments will participate in another exchange with the same Ukrainean newspaper.
