Carleton Journalism students have officially launched the new digital-only Capital Current platform, publishing stories that matter to Ottawa residents, from news and in-depth coverage of important issues to offbeat features and profiles of local personalities.
Capital Current is part of a longstanding tradition of local outreach for both the university and Carleton’s School of Journalism and Communication. With almost 40 students working on the publication at any given time, plus additional content gleaned from the best assignments produced across the school, journalists-in-training are able to polish the digital storytelling skills they’ll need to work in the industry. At the same time, they are giving Ottawa’s diverse neighbourhoods the stories and information that is often missing in the local market.
