WHAT: Student Interactive Session: Race and Media Matters
WHEN: Thursday, January 20, 2011 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
WHERE: Multicultural Center (MCC | SMSU 228)
This year’s Student Interactive Session will tackle the thorny issue of racial disparities and depictions in both the old and new media. What progress, if any, has been made in diversifying newsrooms and anchor chairs locally and nationally? Has the instantaneousness of new media helped or just blurred the picture even further? Join a stellar panel of experts including OPB President, Steve Bass and KPTV reporter, Tony Martinez for a lively discussion.
Event is free to the public.
