Students, alumni, and guests of the Communication Department will have an opportunity to ask award-winning television journalist and author, Jeff Greenfield, this and other questions about the role of professional communicators at a lunch forum from 12:00-1:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 10th.

Greenfield has worked as a professional communicator across a half-century of news, 1968-2018, including on CBS, ABC, CNN, and PBS. Called “the best in the business” by Washington Journalism Review for his media analysis, he has won four Emmys and authored or co-authored 13 books. Greenfield has been a reporter, a political correspondent and analyst, a host of a show on PBS, a speechwriter for Robert F. Kennedy and New York Mayor John Lindsay, and a contributing writer to several publications, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Slate, Newsweek, The Daily Beast, National Lampoon, and Harper's Magazine.

Does 50 years make a difference in the role of the communicator, or only in the tools used? If you will be on campus of October 10th and would like to join us to learn more about how the role of a professional communicator in 1968’s turbulent political and social environment differs and resembles the role of professional communicators in today’s hectic times email Assistant Professor Linda Lockhart at for more information about the event.
