Meeting Recap: September 29, 2010

Hi RTDNA members!

If you missed our meeting last week, below is a recap of what happened. Also, be sure to read the important announcements at the end of this post.

We all met in RTV 371 and walked to Sarah Holt (RTDNA Secretary) and Kristi Ludlow (RTDNA PR Chair)’s home to watch “Broadcast News.” We had ice cream, drinks, and popcorn! It was a great chance to get to know each other. Thank you to everyone who attended!


1.) Join us this Wednesday at 7:30 in RTV 371 for a special presentation about Online Journalism from Scripps Professor, Hans Meyer. Dr. Meyer will share tips and tricks that every broadcast and electronic journalist should know and utilize. He will also discuss topics such as “geo tagging” and it’s role in journalism today.

2.) Dr. Bob Stewart has requested that each Scripps student organization take a group photo. The photo will eventually replace the current photo that is on the top of the J-school website. We will take the photo at this week’s meeting. Please plan (and dress) accordingly. 🙂
