ASNE Report: Diversity Slips in U.S. Newsrooms

(American Society of Newspaper Editors)— March 26, 2007
The percentage of minority journalists working in America’s daily newsrooms declined slightly to 13.62 percent this year, according to the ASNE annual newsroom census.
This year ASNE counted full-time journalists working online for the first time to reflect the industry emphasis on expanding its Web presence. Including online-only journalists helped the minority numbers. This year’s annual census found nearly 2,000 full-time journalists working only on their newspapers’ Web sites. Of those, nearly 16 percent are minorities. Full tables and details are available at this link.
