MACON--On Thursday, April 1, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m., Mercer University's Communications and Theater Arts Department, Media Center and Mercer99 will host Media Day 2004 in Mercer's Religious Life Center.
Students are invited to take part in informal discussions with various media professionals from television stations, newspapers, advertising agencies and radio stations in the Middle Georgia area.
Local media attending the event include:
- Ed Grisamore, Columnist - Macon Telegraph
- Bruce Radcliff, Photographer - Macon Telegraph
- Matt Miller, News Director - FOX 24 News
- Ben Sandifer, Owner - GMS Productions
- Steve Bell, Creative Director - Smart Creative Media
"This is a very valuable tool for students who may be interested in some area of the media, but not necessarily interested in majoring in a media-related field," said Becky Sandifer, new media productions specialist at Mercer. "It is a great opportunity for one-on-one interaction between students and local media."
Sandifer is organizing the Mercer event in collaboration with Cindy Gottshall, professor of communication and theatre arts, and John Chalfa, director of the Media Center.
