NewStories was begun in Fall 2012 by students enrolled in JOMC 242, Mass Media and US History.

NewStories began with a simple proposition: What was it like to work as a journalist during a particular period in history? This oral history archive, begun in Fall 2012, is the work of University of North Carolina students enrolled in journalism/media history coursework led by Dr. Barbara Friedman. Assistance was provided by Lorraine Ahearn, UNC doctoral student; and Meghan Horton, UNC web application programmer.
