Nevada-Reno still looking for biz journalism professor
The University of Nevada-Reno says that its search to find a Donald W. Reynolds professor of business journalism remains open.
The person would replace Dave Morrow, the former editor at TheStreet.com who died earlier this year of cancer.
The job posting says, “Our ideal candidate will combine broad experience in business coverage with an interest in emerging issues of the green economy, economic sustainability and fiscal stress. We are looking for someone who has a distinguished record of publication in print, broadcast or online media and who is energized by the challenges facing journalism today.
“He or she should have extensive experience in journalism or journalism education and be equipped to teach in-depth reporting, both explanatory and investigative. Like all specialties in our school, the business curriculum will be expected to explore new forms of content and delivery.
“We believe the green economy will be one of the next decade’s biggest stories, and we seek a candidate who can bring together policy-makers, business people and journalists to discuss and debate key issues. This emphasis will complement our Master’s program in environmental journalism and our chair will also be able to work with faculty in our College of Business Administration and our Academy for the Environment.”

In an e-mail, Dailey states, “We’re looking for someone with vision. Certainly we’re looking for a person who can write business stories. But we’re also looking for someone who understands business models. We’re looking for someone who understands that current journalism business models must change — and is excited about that change.”
