BJ Koubaroulis: 3 things (extra credit)
On Thursday Feb. 7, the class will meet in Dewberry Hall of the Johnson Center in order for you to participate in the Communication Department's semi-annual Communication Day event between 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. (see seperate e-mail for the full agenda).
Please consider attending early, especially for Jennifer Carroll's 12:15 p.m. presentation on media transformation and what kind of future in the business awaits you (make a 3-thing extra credit entry in the blog item just below). Jennifer is vice president of New Media Content for Gannett's 85 newspapers. I've know her since 1985, when we both worked at the Lansing State Journal. This a wonderful opportunity.
Please look for me at the Journalism table in Dewberry Hall. I'll be joined by BJ Kourbaroulis (left in photo) of the Washington Post and the Fairfax Sports Network. BJ, who has just been selected as the Communication Department's Alumnus of the Year (a terrific honor, so please congratulate him! will speak at 1:35, then will meet with you at the Journalism table.
I need to leave at 1:45 (but you will remain with BJ to talk about networking and getting your career off the ground; make a 3-things entry here for extra credit) for the GMU-TV video studio in 455 Innovation Hall for a 2-3:15 p.m. video conference with former Vice President Walter Mondale as part of my Online Journalism class. The unusual time is to accommodate the former vice president, so I am looking for students who are interested in attending the session (I have 16-18 seats). Please let me know if the opportunity interests you.
