The Department of Organizational and Political Communication, in conjunction with the Department of Journalism, will present its second town hall meeting on the subject of Katrina: Lessons Learned next Monday, November 7 at 6 pm in the Bill Bordy Theater.

A panel of renowned journalists led by Av Westin, a legend in broadcast journalism, will discuss the leadership the media showed during Katrina, the media's failures, and what we should expect from the media in the Katrina aftermath.

Come hear from broadcast journalists Av Westin and Roberts Sachs and New York Times journalist Cornelia Dean about how Katrina can be a turning point in media coverage of key issues facing the nation and the world. Janet Kolodzy from Emerson's Department of Journalism will moderate and provide plenty of time for audience participation.

We predict the boost in CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper's career is not the most important change in the media arising from Katrina. Come see why.
