[UNFILTERED] CNN Veteran, OU Professor Leads New Journalism Project

Posted: Updated:

We've partnered with Mike Boettcher, a News 9 alumnus and CNN pioneer, to create a community journalism project called [UNFILTERED] -- a topic-driven effort with help from students at the Gaylord College of Journalism & Mass Communication at he University of Oklahoma.

"I've had a great life, working overseas, but I always knew I wanted to come back to Oklahoma," Boettcher said.

Along with News 9's help, Boettcher and his students will begin a grassroots effort to engage viewers through topic-driven journalism. Using digital and social media platforms, these students will cover the state, shedding light on your communities.

"What we want to do is bring the public into the process," Boettcher said. "We want your ideas about stories and what we should approach."

With the [UNFILTERED] project, viewers become the storytellers. We know there are many sides to any given issue, and [UNFILTERED] is an outlet to explore those.

"We don't want to show you just the end product. We want to show you our team making that product, and having you part of that process, and I think that is what is truly revolutionary what we're trying to do here," Boettcher said.
