Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas welcomes Mallary Tenore as its new assistant director


The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas has announced the hiring of journalist Mallary Tenore as its new assistant director. Tenore joins the center at the University of Texas at Austin to grow its presence and capabilities as a resource for journalists around the world.

Mallary Tenore joins the Knight Center as its new assistant director.

“We are thrilled to have Mallary Tenore on our team. Her ten years of experience in journalism and journalism training are a perfect fit for the current needs of the Knight Center,” said Rosental Alves, founder and director of the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas. “I am confident she will help us to move the Knight Center to the next level in fulfilling its mission to help journalists in the Americas and beyond.”

Tenore joins the Knight Center after working for almost four years as executive director of Images & Voices of Hope (ivoh), a media nonprofit that promotes journalism as a means for positive change. While at ivoh, Tenore created the organization’s first fellowship program for Restorative Narrative, a storytelling genre that focuses on “recovery, restoration and resilience in the aftermath, or midst of, difficult times.” She has been a pioneer in the genre, speaking on the topic at universities throughout the country.

She previously worked as Interim Executive Editor and Managing Editor of the Poynter Institute’s media news site, Poynter.org. While at Poynter, Tenore reported on the news industry and topics like social media, journalistic tools, diversity, women in technology and more. She also trained journalists on social media techniques.

“I'm pleased to be joining the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas. The Center's mission and work are increasingly important at this time, and its efforts to train, inform and inspire journalists in Latin America and beyond are admirable,” Tenore said. “I'm eager to help the Center continue to thrive in innovative ways and I believe there's a lot of potential for meaningful growth.”

Professor Rosental Alves, Knight Chair in Journalism and UNESCO Chair in Communication at the School of Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin, created the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas in 2002 as a professional training and outreach program for journalists in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Knight Center has trained more than 100,000 students from 171 countries through its online distance learning programs hosted at JournalismCourses.org. It also hosts a trilingual blog, “Journalism in the Americas,” about freedom of expression and media trends in Latin America and the Caribbean. Each spring, the Center organizes the International Symposium on Online Journalism (ISOJ) and the Ibero American Colloquium for Digital Journalism.

The Knight Center continues with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Moody Foundation, the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas and other donors.
