Meet PhD student Molly Yanity

First-year Ph.D. student Molly Yanity joins the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism from Seattle. For 12 years, Yanity wrote sports for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. After the newspaper closed in March 2009, Yanity decided to get back into academia with the hopes of passing some of her knowledge and experience to the young journalists whom she teaches.

The main focus of Yanity’s research is sports. She hopes to link her dissertation research to her passion to learn more about specific areas of the sports industry.

Meet PhD student Jim DeBrosse

Getting a taste for academia at the University of Cincinnati as the student media advisor for four years, DeBrosse retired from the newsroom in August 2010 and decided to follow his new career goal of earning a doctorate in journalism to become a full-time college professor. At the age of 58, DeBrosse feels he can still learn a thing or two about the academic side of journalism.

During my recent trip to DC I interviewed NPR’s Erica Ryan, one of eight alums I met with who work in various journalism positions in the Washington area.

As a journalism student, Erica was in the News Writing and Editing sequence, but she now works for one of the main broadcast news organizations in the country. In this video she explains how she came to be “Editor” for digital news at NPR.

On my recent trip to Washington DC I was bound and determined to talk with 1969 JSchool graduate Clarence Page. The hour-long interview touched on a wide range of topics, from his first journalism experiences in high school to making sense of Marshall McLuhan.

Because of youtube’s limitations on how long a video can be, I broke up the interview into five parts. In part 1, Page shares his views on how to balance the academic demands of college with the need to gain hands-on experience.
