Journalists Of Talent

CBS News has chosen the first two participants for its "journalists-of-talent" training program, a program designed to develop a pool of highly qualified producers and correspondents from which CBS affiliates and stations, as well as CBS News, will be able to draw talent. CBS News hires the journalists to work for two years at participating CBS affiliates or CBS NEWSPATH.

The announcement was made by Andrew Heyward, President, CBS News and Linda Mason, Senior Vice President, Standards and Special Projects, CBS News.

Heyward said, "we know this is a pioneering effort of a kind never before displayed in the major media, and we are proud that CBS News is among the first to stretch the envelope."

The "envelope" reportedly contains documents faxed from a Texas Kinko's. *
