Two Knight partners are coming together in a webinar next week designed to get everyone on the same page with the State of the News Media 2012. It’s the latest Webinar from Poynter's NewsU, and features Tom Rosenstiel, who founded and directs the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism.

The one-hour webinar, costing $10.95 and set for 2 p.m. EST Wednesday March 28, will cover journalism and the mobile market, changing audience habits and local TV news, newspaper pay models, Facebook’s impact on news, nonprofit news sites and more. You can sign up for State of the News Media 2012.

Knight investments co-founded and then helped expand NewsU as it has grown into the nation’s premiere online journalism training site, with more than 210,000 registered users.

Knight partners with Pew on its widely-read media reports, such as this one showing that community members tend to consume certain types of local news from the newspaper, other news from TV and still other news on mobile devices.
