When times are tough and money is tight, journalism training can often be first to go off the list of newsroom priorities, but this article from Mel Grau at Poynter says that is a mistake.

Top talent is not going to wait around forever while there are new and exciting positions out there. Plus, when journalists are trapped in the news cycle, they can feel burned-out and this can be a real issue.
