About Us

www.bizjournalismhistory.org is a project of the Carolina Business News Initiative at the School of Media and Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Initiative trains college students and professional journalists how to become better business journalists.

The Web site is designed to provide people interested in the field of business journalism some historical perspective of how reporting and writing about business and the economy has evolved throughout time.

Professor Chris Roush and Eric David, a former master's student at the School of Media and Journalism, conducted research for this web site. The information contained in the site is also used in a book on the history of business journalism called “Profits and Losses: Business Journalism and its Role in Society.”

School of Media and Journalism visual communication student Vu A. Nguyen designed the web site.
