Global Journalists Come To Experience U.S. Newsrooms

Jul 14, 2016

Since 1983 Alfred Friendly Press has offered fellowships to journalists from developing countries and emerging markets to spend six months working at U.S. host news organizations.  Up to Date's Steve Kraske talks with three Fellows who remind us that freedom of the press is not a right to be taken for granted. 



  • Mercy Adhiambo from Nairobi, Kenya, now writes a column for The Oklahoman in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
  • Olena Goncharova​ from Kyiv, Ukraine, is with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
  • Gökçe Aytulu from Istanbul, Turkey, has a fellowship with The Kansas City Star.
