Griffith University is a foundation partner of a new and free Queensland centric digital news service due to launch in February 2020.
The partnership with InQueensland will help support new independent journalism endeavours and also provide valuable work-integrated learning opportunities for Griffith’s journalism students.
“InQueensland promises to deliver a free, independent, daily digital news website and email newsletter focusing on politics, business, community, arts and culture,” Professor Martin Betts, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Engagement) said.
“It is pleasing to see a fresh news service launch in this state and it is an initiative which demonstrates confidence in local audiences and a real commitment to the issues that matter to Queenslanders.
“This partnership will build upon Griffith’s strong brand with the business, government and arts communities as well as provide our final-year journalism students with industry experiences including internship opportunities.
“I encourage students, staff and anyone interested in accessing a fresh perspective on local issues to consider subscribing to the free service.”
InQueensland’s editorial team includes some of the country’s most well-known names in journalism, including Sean Parnell, former Australian and Courier-Mail journalist, Queensland political expert Dennis Atkins, Clarion award winner John McCarthy and passionate arts and entertainment writer and editor Brett Debritz.
The foundation partnership will run for twelve months.
