black journalists

An article in the Columbia Journalism Review discusses the increasing number of African-American journalists leaving mainstream media for Black-oriented outlets.

The Columbia Journalism Review reports:

Some of these moves were prompted by layoffs and buyouts; others by disillusionment with mainstream journalism or a desire to delve more deeply into African-American issues. Whatever the reasons, with increasing frequency, African-American journalists are reversing the once common trajectory from the black press to the mainstream.

Peaking in 2006, Black journalists held 5.5 percent of newsroom jobs. According to a survey by the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the number of African Americans at mainstream newspapers fell 34 percent between 2001 and 2011.

As of 2010, African Americans, who make up about 15 percent of the US population, hold 4.68 percent of US newspaper newsroom jobs.
