JOHN B.. GAINES FAMILY LECTURE SERIES -- Live coverage at http://bit.ly/toddgillman Tweet your comments: #gillman

  • Location: Mass Media & Technology Hall Auditorium
  • Time: 7:00pm - 8:30am

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 28, 2013

WASHINGTON BUREAU CHIEF FOR THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS

TO VISIT WKU APRIL 8 FOR JOHN B. GAINES FAMILY LECTURE SERIES

Todd Gillman to offer perspective on journalism inside the Beltway

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.— Todd Gillman, Washington bureau chief for The Dallas Morning News, will present Beltway Blues: Covering Congress and the White House for a regional news outlet at 7 p.m. Monday, April 8, in Mass Media & Technology Hall auditorium at Western Kentucky University.

 Gillman is the ninth speaker in the annual John B. Gaines Family Lecture Series, a free WKU event open to the public.

 “Thanks to the generosity of the Gaines family, this lecture series offers our students an opportunity to learn from and to interact with current leaders in journalism,” said David Lee, dean of WKU’s Potter College of Arts and Letters.

As a Washington bureau chief since January 2009, Gillman reported on all three 2012 presidential debates and about a dozen of the GOP primary debates, starting with the first in May 2011 in Greenville, S.C.  He covered the Iowa Straw Poll and the Democratic and Republican conventions and reported on Texas Gov. Rick Perry and other contenders throughout Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire. Spending New Year's Eve in Des Moines, Iowa, ahead of the caucuses, Todd also visited most of the political battleground states by November.

  “Todd’s experience in Washington will not only be beneficial to our journalism students, but to all students and members of the community who are interested in a veteran journalist’s perspective of covering our nation’s political leaders,” said Loup Langton, director of WKU’s School of Journalism & Broadcasting.

Gillman covered his first Texas gubernatorial contest in 1990, and his first presidential campaign two years later. Serving as the paper’s local political writer and columnist during George W. Bush’s 2000 campaign for president, he was a lead writer on the paper’s award-winning coverage of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Gillman joined the newspaper in 1989 reporting on state and regional issues as well as Dallas City Hall before moving to Washington in 2003 to cover Congress.  He holds a bachelor’s degree from The Johns Hopkins University in International Studies and a master’s degree in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.  A longtime leader in the Society of Professional Journalists, he has served as president of the Dallas Professional Chapter of SPJ, on the SPJ national board and as president of the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation board — SPJ’s supporting foundation — on which he still serves.

Live coverage including streaming video will be at http://bit.ly/toddgillman

"Hope for Haiti?" an exhibit of photographs -- April 5-26

  • Location: MMTH Gallery
  • Time: 9:00am - 9:00pm

“Hope for Haiti?”, an exhibit of photographs, sponsored by the School of Journalism and Broadcasting, was created over several visits in 2012 by Professor James H. Kenney Jr., coordinator of the Photojournalism program at Western Kentucky University. This exciting show of nearly 40 photographs focuses on the slow recovery of a country hit by a devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. Despite massive volunteer efforts and the billions of dollars invested in its recovery, Haiti remains a country living on the brink of collapse. However, the Haitians refuse to accept failure as the final chapter in their nation's long history.

The gallery is free and open to the public. Parking is available after 4:30 pm in the Chestnut St. parking lot. The hours for the gallery are:

Monday – Wednesday, 9:00 am – 9:00 pm
Thursday – Friday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Gearing up for its 25th anniversary this fall, WWHR-FM decided to deliver a double-headliner music festival to Bowling Green for the first time on Friday, April 26 at Circus Square.

Robert DeLong comes to us all the way from LA. He's one of Billboard's top artists to watch in 2013 and scheduled Mayhem between Coachella and his European tour.

Pomegranates are an indie rock band fro...m Cincinnati. Spin describes them as "A youthful, open-eared quartet enlivened with a kick-ass record collection, ceiling-less imagination, ragged guitars, and songwriting chops for days."

Revolution invites you to come chill, mingle, and dance at the biggest charity music festival we've ever organized. The show is free, but we'd appreciate donations to benefit New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding.

Join us! Circus Square, Bowling Green, 4:00 p.m. to midnight Friday, April 26, 2013.
