One hundred international journalists visit St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG — One hundred journalists from more than 80 countries have gathered in St. Petersburg this week to "examine the role of independent media in fostering and protecting freedom of expression and democracy around the world," according to a news release.

Nonprofit World Partnerships, based in the Tampa Bay area, hosts the 10th anniversary of the Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists. The program, part of the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program, has brought thousands of international journalists to the U.S.

This year's group, comprised of journalists from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, will spend two days at the Poynter Institute (which owns the Tampa Bay Times) for an advanced training symposium and visit print and broadcast media outlets in the area.
