Journalism professors often say running a successful blog can lead to a full-time reporting job. ONA Mizzou and the Mizzou Business Journalism Association are bringing living proof to campus.

Join us as New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter shares how he turned his blog TVNewser, a hub for news about TV journalism, into a full-time job at the paper right after graduating from college. Featured in the True/False documentary “Page One: Inside The New York Times,” Stelter will give tips on maximizing digital identity to impress future employers.

7 p.m., Nov. 5

Fisher Auditorium (88 Gannett Hall)

Free and open to the public

This event isn't just for journalists. Business and information technology students interested in online entrepreneurship could also learn a thing or two from Stelter. The guest host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" — who boasts more than 200,000 Twitter followers — built his blog from the ground up into a must-read for other news organizations covering the TV beat.

Stelter has worked at the Times during a frenzy of change as the paper pushes further into the digital realm. Those who remember the paper back when it existed only in ink might find it interesting to hear how this beacon of traditional media has adapted to the demands of a new generation.

This event is made possible by the Donald W. Reynolds Chair in Business Journalism. Brought to you in part by Student Activity Fees.
