WEINER PUBLIC NEWS

Weiner Public News is a newspaper commentary column group that recruits young journalists from colleges all over the country as bylined co-authors and writers. We have written more than 800 op-eds that have appeared in major media outlets. Funding is derived from payments by the papers, a foundation (Solutions for Change) supporting the young journalists' mission, contributions to the foundation, and what Robert Weiner puts into the work directly from his federal retirement annuity. It is a unique and successful Washington, DC program for young journalists creating bylined, published articles covering Congress and the White House. Bob and the program won the National Press Club President's Award in January 2016, for recruiting and mentoring young journalists as bylined co-authors of published opeds in major papers.
