The International Center for Journalists will send a fellow to Bangladesh in early 2011. For approximately a one-month period, the Rapid-Response Fellow will support the development of the Television News Agency (TvNA). Launched in 2009 by the Bangladesh Centre for Development, Journalism and Communication (BCDJC) and Knight International Journalism Fellow Kawser Mahmud, TvNA is the first women’s broadcast news agency in Bangladesh. In partnership with BCDJC, the fellow will help women journalists produce quality programming on issues that affect women and children for TvNA. The fellow also will help TvNA and its partners develop better newsroom management practices. The ideal candidate will have broadcast journalism and media-management experience.
