I’ve known Andy for many years, and had heard several legendary tales about his time as a student. I was determined to track him down on my recent trip to DC to ask him about some of these stories. What I learned about his experiences while a student at OU was far more compelling than even the legends. In the first video, Andy explains why he didn’t spend as much time in the classroom as he should have (hint: The Post). He also describes his three international “internship” experiences, starting with the summer between his first and second year.

DC profile: Phil Ewing (BSJ ’05)

I recently returned from Washington DC, where I interviewed eight JSchool alums. Today I’m featuring the first of those eight, Phil Ewing (BSJ ’05), a reporter for Navy Times.

Garrett Downing graduated from the JSchool this past June. He already had landed a position with WEWS in Cleveland. I recently received this email, which he has given me permission to republish.

A recent photo [added 9/14/10] of Garrett on set during a WEWS sports program.

Scholars convene at AEJMC in Denver

Back in May, grad director Mike Sweeney wrote a blog post about the faculty and grad students who were headed to AEJMC in Denver to present their research.

We’re all safely back from Denver now, and I’m happy to say that OU, the Scripps College, and the JSchool in particular, showed up in impressive form. In addition to the participants noted in Mike’s blog, I was struck by the number of alums from our program who not only attend but present their research. In addition to all of those folks I’ve been privileged to meet and know in the past 20+ years, former director Ralph Izard pointed out a number of key individuals in the AEJMC organization who got their doctorates from the JSchool before my arrival in 1987. Made me very proud.
