A typical day

December 11, 2014

What does a typical day at NBTB look like? The answer is journalism classes in the morning, student-directed production in the afternoons, and guest speakers that help us put it all together in the evenings. Here’s how it usually breaks down … 7:30 a.m to 8:30 a.m. — Breakfast at our Stanford dining hall on campus […]

June 29, 2014

June 26, 2014

By Simon Greenhill and Casey Miller, Counselors-in-Training Four hours since they left Stanford, Newsroom by the Bay’s Year 1 students are experiencing the diversity of activities available in San Francisco. Like good journalists, of course, they are also meticulously documenting their adventures using their iPads and iOgraphers. See our Storify summary of their day so […]

And they are off! Year 1 reporting teams head into San Francisco for a day of reporting, writing and capturing news by the bay

June 26, 2014

Students immerse themselves in Silicon Valley startups

June 26, 2014

By Simon Greenhill and Casey Miller, Counselors-in-Training The era of stuffy boardrooms and claustrophobic cubicles is decidedly over. That was more apparent than ever for Newsroom by the Bay’s Year 2 students Wednesday as they explored Palo Alto startups on the program’s Silicon Valley field trip. Students visited Stanford’s Institute of Design, Ideo and Issuu, […]

Old records and older phonographs

June 25, 2014

  By Simon Greenhill and Casey Miller, Counselors-in-Training Students from the Year 1 and 2 programs visited Stanford’s Archive of Recorded Sound Tuesday. As the crackliest of crackly old records—a men’s choir performing in the 1910s—played on an antique phonograph, students learned the history and development of music recording since the late 1800s. The Archive […]


“We were so happy to find Newsroom by the Bay. Our son Ethan traveled from Boston to San Francisco to participate in the summer of 2013 and the program sealed his decision to become a journalist. With the knowledge he gained and the guidance of directors Paul and Beatrice, Ethan came home to his senior year motivated to apply to some of the nation’s top journalism schools.”

“Thank you so much for a Newsroom by the Bay experience that I will never forget! During my 10 days at Stanford, I learned so much about journalism, people and myself. I learned that the friends and connections you make now will impact your life forever, and I’m lucky to have made such great friends and connections at NBTB this year.”

“On behalf of the other guys and myself, I’d like to thank you both for an amazing week. Personally, I can say that here, I’ve found many of the answers I’ve been looking for. Our website barely had any views, and I never knew why. Coming to NBTB and meeting people who were super-energetic and would always challenge my way of thinking about how journalism works today was amazing.”
