Speaker Series Brings Leading Journalists to Cronkite
Jan. 18, 2011
Correspondents for The New York Times and National Public Radio, a former Wall Street reporter for CNN, the founder of ProPublica and the editor of The Seattle Times are among those headlining a speaker's series at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.
Students gather most Mondays throughout the semester at 7 p.m. to hear from such prominent media professionals as part of the Cronkite School's "Must See Mondays" speaker series.
Brian Storm, founder and executive producer of MediaStorm, will kick off the series on Jan. 31.
Following him will be speakers including Marcia Parker, West Coast editorial director at AOL/Patch Media; Susan Lisovicz, former Wall Street reporter for CNN; Paul Steiger, CEO and president of ProPublica; Marc Lacey, Phoenix bureau chief for the New York Times; and Caesar Andrews, Edith Kinney Gaylord the Cronkite School's visiting professor in journalism ethics.
The speakers will touch on issues including visual storytelling, hyperlocal news, covering the border, ethics in the digital age and producing investigative journalism as a nonprofit newsroom.
The talks take place 7-8 p.m. each Monday of the semester in the school's First Amendment Forum on the downtown Phoenix campus of ASU. They are free, and the public is welcome to attend. Past speaker events can still be viewed online at http://cronkite.asu.edu/node/866.
"The speaker series has always been strong, but this year's lineup is exceptional," said Cronkite Associate Dean Kristin Gilger. "The speakers include some of the nation's leading journalists who have some very interesting things to share with students, professionals and the public."
In addition to the Monday speaker series, the school hosts Cronkite Night at the Movies most Wednesday evenings throughout the semester.
Journalism-related movies, including "Cronkite: Legend and Legacy" and "Download: The True Story of the Internet, Part 2: Search," will be shown on the school's 16-by-9-foot high-definition big screen in the First Amendment Forum. Cronkite professors with expertise in the areas of journalism depicted in the movies introduce the films and lead a discussion afterward.
In addition, after each event, the school's blog site, Cronkite Conversations, provides a forum where students and the public can discuss their impressions.
