NEW YORK, N.Y.—Rev. Matthew F. Malone, S.J., president and editor in chief of America Media, announced today the selection of three graduating seniors from U.S. Jesuit Colleges and Universities to serve as the 2018-19 Joseph A. O’Hare, S.J., Postgraduate Media Fellows. This year’s fellows are:

  • Ciaran Freeman: graduating senior, Santa Clara University
  • Brandon Sanchez: graduating senior, Santa Clara University
  • Emma Winters: graduating senior, Boston College

O’Hare Fellows spend one year at America Media working on print, digital, audio and film projects while benefitting from mentoring and professional development opportunities. Fellows spend the year living at Fordham University Lincoln Center, where they can engage in a dynamic community in the heart of New York City, the media capital of the world.

“This is a highly competitive program and unique opportunity for graduating seniors interested in pursuing a career in journalism,” said Matt Malone, S.J., “and we are proud to continue offering this opportunity by welcoming Ciaran, Brandon and Emma to become a part of the America team.”

The O’Hare Fellowship is a program of America Media, co-sponsored by Fordham University. The fellowship is named in honor of Joseph A. O’Hare, S.J., who served as editor in chief of America (1975-84) and president of Fordham University (1984-2003).

The Joseph A. O’Hare, S.J., Postgraduate Media Fellowship is made possible through the generosity of William J. Loschert, Fordham University’s Gabello School of Business, Class of 1961, and a member of America Media’s board of directors.
