Jane Singer
Atlanta, Ga.


Jane Singer teaches online journalism, media ethics and a variety of other courses in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Her professional experience includes 10 years in the editorial department of what evolved into the Prodigy service. She was Prodigy's first news manager, in charge of one of the first around-the-clock news products ever to be delivered to people's homes through a computer. She also has five years experience as a reporter and editor at three East Coast newspapers.

She has published research about online newspaper coverage of elections, including several articles about coverage of both the Iowa caucus and the general election in 2000. She found that most online editors were interested primarily in the medium's ability to provide extensive background information and updated election returns, rather than its interactive or multimedia capabilities. She looks forward to seeing how online coverage evolves this time around.

Singer holds a Ph.D. in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, an M.A. in liberal studies from New York University and a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Georgia. Born in New York and raised in Atlanta, she came to Iowa in 1999 after several years on the journalism faculty at Colorado State University.
