Doug Mitchell

Doug Mitchell founded and managed NPR’s “next generation radio.” It was a program funded by NPR to recruit, train and retain young people interested in public radio. In partnership with the minority journalist associations, College Broadcasters INC and NPR member stations, next generation radio trained hundreds of young people and today many are heard on public radio across the country. Competitively selected students were paired with a mentor and together they conceived, developed, reported, wrote, produced and edited a story on a deadline. Doug’s 21.5 year career at NPR was recognized in 2009 by the Public Radio News Directors INC (PRNDI), UNITY and the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) with their lifetime achievement awards.
Today, Doug is the Career Coach and blogger for Knowledgewebb.net, a member-supported online technology resource for journalists of all ages and backgrounds. Also, Doug is the project manager for the African-American Public Radio Stations project under the National Federation of Community Broadcasters where he consults to 30 designated African-American public radio stations across the U.S. And, he teaches an “Intro To Radio” short course at the City University Of New York Graduate School of Journalism (CUNY) in New York City.
Doug is a former Dow Jones Newspaper Fund awardee. He is a 1997 Knight International Press Fellow, a 2003 US State Department Visitor grantee , a 2007 Fulbright “Senior Specialist” grantee to Santiago, Chile and a 2010 Poynter Institute Sense-Making Fellow.
