We’re back from Spring Break here, and I’m hitting the ground running. This Wednesday, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion on “The Future of Journalism” here at EIU, joined by the Journerdist himself, Will Sullivan, along with John Foreman, publisher of the News-Gazette of Champaign-Urbana, Ill. and Nancy Foreman, executive producer at WCIA-TV3 in Champaign. Jeff Lynch, interim dean of the EIU College of Arts and Humanities will moderate. Should be an interesting event, and I’ll post audio or video once it’s over.
Then, this weekend, I’ll be assisting with the APME/MPI NewsTrain workshop in Arlington Heights, Ill. (details here) The faculty is pretty impressive. Mark Briggs will be there, as will Derek Willis, whom I’ve interviewed, but never met in person. I hope to have some short videos available from that workshop as well.
Meanwhile, here are some random links to start the day off right.
