NLP featured on public radio in Washington, D.C.


The Kojo Nnamdi Show on WAMU, a public radio station in Washington, D.C., devoted an hour Monday afternoon to a segment on the News Literacy Project and news literacy.

Alan C. Miller, NLP’s president and founder, was joined on the show by Matea Gold, a Los Angeles Times reporter and one of NLP’s most active journalist fellows, and Scott Menscher, who teaches a course on mass media at Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn and is currently using the NLP curriculum.

The show included a discussion on news literacy with the show’s host, Kojo Nnamdi, and responses to calls from listeners.

Through its partnerships with middle schools and high schools in the District of Columbia, Montgomery County, Maryland, and Fairfax County, Virginia, along with schools in New York City and Chicago, NLP is reaching more than 3,800 students this school year.

Gold has made presentations in NLP schools in New York City, Washington and Montgomery County, Maryland, and has appeared via Skype in schools in Chicago. She is also featured in a narrated video that is part of NLP’s digital unit.
