While traditional journalism jobs have been diminishing in the age of the "new media," today's journalism students are still passionate and interested in careers in media, according to Caesar Andrews, the Leonard Distinguished Professor in Ethics and Writing at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno. "In some regards the way they define media may be quite different from the way I would have as a student x number of years ago," Andrews said. "When they think media, they're not merely thinking print or broadcast, they're thinking the whole range of possibilities."
Andrews said the Reynolds School's Center for Advance Media Studies brings in outside experts and speakers to campus to provide varied perspectives to the students and faculty. Hedrick Smith, bestselling author of book "Who Stole the American Dream," Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter, and Emmy Award–winning producer spent two days on campus, with a lecture at the Joe Crowley Student Union on Sept. 16. Smith was interviewed by phone by KUNR's David Stipech along with Andrews for Beyond the Headlines (9-12-14).
