Tina Pamintuan, director of radio projects and initiatives at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, has been selected as a 2014 visiting fellow by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.

One of five journalists chosen for the prestigious fellowship program, she will develop a plan for a mobile app that will enable ethnic radio stations across the United States to reach more audiences and share programming.

Neiman fellows work on projects designed to enhance journalism in some unique way. The other four 2014 fellows are:

Taylor Goldenstein, a recent graduate of the University of Illinois’s journalism program, who will work on a website for college journalists;

Samar Halarnkar, a writer and former managing editor of the Hindustan Times, who will look into building a mobile phone-based system to help with public-interest investigative projects;

Allissa Richardson, an assistant professor of journalism at Bowie State University, who will develop a free online educational resource to teach how to report news using only tablets, MP3 players, or smartphones;

David Smydra, a member of Google’s news partnerships team, who will develop an open, collaborative calendar for keeping track of future news events.
