360 Degrees of Mass Media

What do you call an event where people are talking, having fun, and getting helpful and resourceful information? Try 360 Degrees of Mass Media.

On Wednesday, Sept. 24, in the Olson Auditorium, at 6:30 p.m., the National Association of Black Journalists will be holding a media program open to all students at Sam Houston State University.

The program will consist of five panelists from every aspect of the media. They include Rachey Mayes and Madd Hatta from 97.9 Tha Boxx, Ron Daniels from Sportsnet New York, Terrance Harris from the Houston Chronicle, Joe Brown from KBTX, and Leann Muns from Huntsville I.S.D./SHSU. There will be a series of topics where the panelists will answer questions that will help and prepare students and better their careers.

Some topics include what to expect after graduation, how to get internships, how to present yourself at career fairs, and overall general tips on preparing yourself for the so called “working world.”

“This program is going to be very exciting for me, I can’t wait to get helpful information, because I don’t know a lot about the media field,” said NABJ Secretary Kristina Walsh.

“I’m hoping that we have a good turnout from the students, we feel that NABJ is here to help the students get insight to what they need to know for when they graduate,” NABJ President Herbie Smith said.
