Baruch Weissman’s Journalism Department is known for launching students into top-flight careers in the field. Our alumni are working at places like The City, The Washington Post, Politico, The New York Post, Insider, The Wall Street Journal, Viacom, NBC, and many other major media outlets. They’re winning awards, covering the biggest stories of the day, and often doing investigative work on issues like social justice.

Our journalism students typically have several internships during their years at Baruch, and those real-world experiences are vital to building their careers. But there’s another important pillar to our journalism grads’ success, and that’s the dedication of our journalism faculty. Our professors not only bring distinguished newsroom resumes to their teaching, but many of them also continue to put in time as working journalists while teaching at Baruch. They’re modeling a commitment to the practice of journalism, and their work in the field inspires and informs what happens in the classroom.

Two cases in point:

  • Professor Gisele Regatão is working with Spotify as executive producer of three podcast pilots by U.S. Latinx creators who are part of their Sound Up initiative. Spotify says the goal of the project is to “raise up the next generation of podcasters through education, workshops and support” and “create a space for new voices, stories and perspectives in podcasting.”
