West Virginia University’s Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism will welcome a 2006 Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, a Yahoo! News journalist, and Associated Press and independent multimedia journalists for Journalism Week 2007 March 5-9.
“Beyond Convergence: The New Media Landscape” will explore the trends and innovations in journalism and new media and the future of mass communications.
“Journalism is no longer just print and broadcast news. News is being reported and produced across media platforms using multimedia technologies,” said Dean Maryanne Reed. “We want our students, our faculty and the University community to learn from and be inspired by what professionals are doing to reach an increasingly diverse and sophisticated media audience.”
