Grady College to host 22nd annual Management Seminar for College News Editors
More than 50 college journalists from across the U.S. will learn leadership, management and content development skills at Grady College July 23-28, 2017, during the 22nd annual Management Seminar for College News Editors (MSCNE).
Sponsored by the Cox Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership and directed by Nsenga Burton, the seminar will be led by nearly 20 educators and industry professionals. The late Conrad Fink started the program in 1996 to better prepare campus news editors for top management positions at their news organizations.
Featured presenters this year include: Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center; Butch Ward, senior faculty at The Poynter Institute; Akili Ramsess, executive director of the National Press Photographers Association; Selwyn Crawford (ABJ ’81), team leader/special writer for The Dallas Morning News; Mark Fomil, mobile content specialist at The Weather Channel; Kim Wilson, founder & CEO of Social News Desk; and photojournalist Billy Weeks, among others.
On Wednesday, the group will travel to Atlanta and meet with reporters, editors and producers at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in the morning and at CNN in the afternoon. Rodney Thrash, AJC’s Atlanta Now coach, and Paul Crum, CNN’s vice president of U.S. news operations, will host and help lead these sessions.
On Thursday afternoon, student editors will gain hands-on multimedia experience and participate in a simulated news event that involves UGA public safety and communications officials.
