OTTUMWA — This month’s American Journalism Review features an article on a national project in which Courier reporter Matt Milner participated.

The story by AJR editorial assistant Alex Tilitz is called “Big Projects for Small Papers: A Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. program generates ambitious series for its 90 dailies.”

The magazine describes how reporters from several smaller papers were drafted into a program where they used the resources of the parent corporation to investigate stories around the country.

In the article, Milner is described as having returned to Ottumwa with a new attitude about the importance of multi-media and video presentations, the Courier Web site, and the value of live blogging. His Elite Reporter series focused on the 50th anniversary of the country’s interstate highway system.
