Outside Learning: Douglas Brinkley Talk

FYI, this will qualify for an Outside Learning event: attend, send me a 200-300 word email about the talk and how it affects journalism within 24 hours.

No room number yet, will append that once I have it.

The Fourth Peabody – Smithgall Lecture honoring Mrs. Lessie Smithgall will be presented on September 17 at 4:00 PM in the Miller Learning Center.

The lecture will be presented by Douglas Brinkley whose recent biography of Walter Cronkite attracted much notice. His lecture topic is:

“Walter Cronkite and American Broadcast Journalism”

Please announce to all your classes and encourage all to attend. Given recent events relating the College to both broadcast and print journalism, this lecture can serve us all.

More information forthcoming throughout next week.

I have read one of Brinkley’s books (though not this one), the depth of his research is absolutely stunning.
