Morgantown, WV (AP) -- West Virginia University has received an $85,000 grant to help rural newspapers produce multimedia content for their web sites.
The grant announced Monday from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation will help fund a project begun last fall by the P.I. Reed School of Journalism.
The university said journalism students, interim Associate Dean John Temple and visiting Shott Chair of Journalism Bill Kuykendall are training newspaper staff how to gather audio, video and text.
Staffers also will receive help with blogging and social networking.
