Columbia News Service Launches

Columbia Journalism School is excited to announce the launch of Columbia News Service, a digital news platform featuring exceptional work by graduate students at

The site covers a wide variety of stories, from local and national politics, to the impact of COVID-19 on communities in New York City, to business and educational trends. Columbia News Service (CNS) is headed by Prof. Bill Grueskin, who served as an editor at The Wall Street Journal, Miami Herald and Bloomberg News, as well as Academic Dean of the Journalism School. Cherie Henderson, a Ph.D. student at the Journalism School and a former AP and Miami Herald editor, is assisting with the site.

“We’re thrilled to provide this showcase for our talented students,” said Grueskin. “Even with the health restrictions imposed by the pandemic, they are finding and reporting stories that other outlets miss.”

CNS has already published many compelling and important stories, including a piece on how a police union boss has tried to pull the NYPD rank and file into MAGA territory and an interview with a jazz musician who was beaten near his Harlem home. All stories published on Columbia News Service are available for republication by outside news outlets at no charge.
