News Group Stands By Unity After Black Journalist Split

 WASHINGTON – The Radio Television Digital News Association looks forward to continuing its long standing and strong relationship with UNITY: Journalists of Color and each of the minority journalism organizations following the National Association of Black Journalists’ recent withdrawal from UNITY. 


“RTDNA will continue its healthy relationship with each of our partner organizations,” said RTDNA Chairman Mark Kraham. “UNITY, NABJ, AAJA, NAHJ, NAJA and NLGJA are all vital in helping our organization bring a stronger awareness of diversity coverage and newsroom diversity to our audiences and beyond. RTDNA has always valued partnerships with other journalism organizations and see them as beneficial to our profession.”

"At this time, we also encourage news associations to continue the discussion about their existing and future partnerships to ensure beneficial and fruitful collaborations moving forward,” Kraham said.

Each year, RTDNA honors outstanding achievements in the coverage of diversity with the RTDNA/UNITY Award. The award is part of the covenant the association has adopted with UNITY: Journalists of Color, to achieve diversity in the newsroom through developing news content and editorial staffs that reflect the changing face of communities.

 RTDNA is the world’s largest professional organization devoted exclusively to electronic journalism. RTDNA represents local and network news professionals in broadcasting, cable and other electronic media in more than 30 countries.
