Andrew Haeg, a veteran journalist and technology entrepreneur, recently was named the first entrepreneur-in-residence for the Mercer Center for Collaborative Journalism.
With more than 15 years experience as a journalist, Haeg is the founder of Groundsource, a mobile research and engagement platform for researchers and journalists. He previously was involved with American Public Media, where he co-founded the Public Insight Network, an online initiative that incorporates audience knowledge into journalism, according to a news release.
A former reporter for the Minnesota Public Radio News, Haeg was a correspondent for The Economist and was a fellow at Stanford University, where he co-created a Redesigning Journalism class.
The challenges facing journalism today are of unprecedented scale and scope, but I believe there are greater opportunities than ever before to serve the information needs of the public, Haeg said in the news release. I cant imagine a better place to explore the future of community-centered journalism than at Mercer Universitys Center for Collaborative Journalism.
The Center for Collaborative Journalism is a partnership among Mercer, The Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting.
