Freedom Forum report, "No Train, No Gain," in 1993
outlined both a serious lack of training and education for
newspaper staffs and an interest among editors and reporters in more training
opportunities. From that report developed an annual Freedom Forum
training editors conference* that has produced a wealth of ideas on
how to set up and run newsroom training programs.
The training editors' goal is not fame or glory, but sharing and learning. Félix

This Web site is one of the ways in which the training editors make
their ideas available to a broader audience.
Most of the trainers are active participants in the Training Editors
Conference and the listserv NewsCoach, both hosted by The
Poynter Institute for Media Studies.*
