ASNE votes to drop 'Newspapers' from its name
Published: April 06, 2009
Four bylaws amendments approved by member vote promise to strengthen the nation's premier news editors group.
In the most significant change, ASNE will become the American Society of News Editors, dropping "newspapers" from its name. In addition, the group will open membership to leaders of online news providers and leading journalism educators.
In a letter to members announcing the results, ASNE President Charlotte Hall states that this change will allow "us to reflect the fact that we serve editors who are leaders in delivering news on multiple platforms in addition to newsprint."
