I’m going to continuously update this post when I come across examples of multimedia journalism that I want to share with my students. Here’s three works to start off:

  • Barry Bearak’s “The Jockey” — focuses on Russell Baze, the winningest horse race jockey in American history. 

And just for fun, here’s a collection of great ledes. And here’s an explanation for why journalists spell “lede” that way.
