AEJMC to carry this blog on “Hot Topics”
The Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication will host “My Register Experience” blog on its popular site “Hot Topics” during the week of Nov. 1, chronicling the return of two veteran journalism professors to the digital newsroom of the Des Moines Register.
Dennis Chamberlin, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and Michael Bugeja, former bureau chief for United Press International, will test their journalism skills during the week of Nov. 8. They are planning an enterprise piece on “The New Poverty,” documenting how the failing economy in Iowa is affecting all strata of society.
AEJMC will begin carrying the blog as Chamberlin and Bugeja prepare for their stint in Des Moines. “Hot Topics” will feature their impressions during the Register experience and also one week later, when Bugeja and Chamberlin will reflect on whether their skills are viable today.
Bugeja directs the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication at Iowa State University where Chamberlin teaches visual communication.
