LCCC’s Press Day will kick off at 8:30 a.m. April 26 (Thursday) at the College Center.

The event is free and open to students, faculty, staff and the public. The registration, which is free, will begin at 8:30 a.m., followed by a presentation of LCCC’s journalism program.

At 10 a.m., a panel of print and broadcast journalists will discuss the “importance of the watchdog role of the media especially when they are being called the enemy of the people.”

Attendees will have an opportunity to tour LCCC’s Boom Radio Station, TV studio and the Collegian’s newsroom after the free pizza lunch.

The next session, which is set to begin at 1:15 p.m., features LCCC graduates who are working for area newspapers and TV stations.

This is the first time LCCC is hosting such an event. It is sponsored by the Division of Arts and Humanities, the Center for Teaching Excellence, Student Life, Student Senate and The Collegian.

Other attractions include door prizes and giveaways.  Advance registration is suggested. Contact Student Life at 440-366-4036.
