STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Kathryn Jones Malone, a Tarleton adjunct instructor of journalism, has been selected as one of 31 fellows by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism.

The fellows include 16 journalists and 15 professors who will attend four days of intensive study in business journalism Jan. 2-5 at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Phoenix.

Jones Malone has been an adjunct instructor at Tarleton since 2005. She has been a contributing editor for Texas Monthly and a special contributor to the New York Times, and has worked for several newspapers, including the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Times Herald. She’s received numerous writing and editing awards from the Texas Press Association, the West Texas Press Association, the Dallas Press Club and others.

“The professionalism of the applicants for this seventh year of our annual business journalism seminars has been impressive,” said Andrew Leckey, president of the Reynolds Center. “The demand for quality coverage of business and economic issues continues to grow, with news organizations and universities rising to the occasion.”

Since 2003, more than 15,000 journalists have learned to cover business better through free training from the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism. The center is at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University’s Phoenix campus. The center offers regional workshops and webinars, as well as daily tips to cover business better at BusinessJournalism.org.

It is funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, a national philanthropic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Headquartered in Las Vegas, it has committed over $115 million nationwide through its Journalism Program.
