Student Media was proud to welcome author and journalist Peter Copeland as a special guest speaker on Friday, October 11th. His latest book, Finding the News: Adventures of a Young Reporter, was a perfect jumping-off point for a fascinating and thoughtful group discussion about journalism’s past and future with student editors and staff.

Copeland’s extensive work with newspapers, wire services, magazines, cable television networks, broadcast television stations, and digital platforms made him the perfect guest speaker to share career insights and inspiring stories with our aspiring media professionals. Throughout his 40-year career Copeland served as Washington bureau chief of the E.W. Scripps Company, editor and general manager of Scripps Howard News Service, a Pentagon correspondent, a foreign correspondent based in Mexico City, and a night police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago, just to name a few.
