Show No. 436, Hour 1 with guest Steve Beverly
Original Airdates: Feb. 1-3, 2019
Ed welcomes Steve Beverly, television historian and professor of communications arts at Union University (Jackson, TN). Topics include how Jackson 24/7, the daily student-produced newscast that Steve supervises at Union University, teaches students “triage” in the broadcast journalism sense of word, and how the death of Robin Williams inspired Steve to become an advocate for mental health, particularly among TV news professionals. A member of the National Association on Mental Illness, Steve Beverly is ready, willing and able to speak to any television news operation in America about depression, as well as recognizing and coping with surviving vulnerabilities to mental illness in one of the most rewarding but highest-stress professions: TV news. Contact Steve directly for more information about the seminars he provides.
