ST. PETERSBURG — Kelly McBride has been named vice president for academic programs at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies.

McBride ''has the credibility, expertise, ideas and passion to help execute the new mission … to be a global thought leader and innovator in this time of transformational change in newsrooms and journalism education," said Poynter president Tim Franklin.
