Amanda Van West Writes about Her UK Masters

I'd definitely recommend getting an advanced degree abroad! It took less than a year, and the degree is valid in the US. Yes, I'd say there's value in getting to experience the news culture here, in comparison to the US. One big difference that I found is that it's so much easier to get interviews in the US. Over here, many people don't give student journalists the time of day...so then you have to work hard to think of creative solutions to fill in those gaps!

Michael Serazio: a Job, a Wife ...

Hope 2010 has started off auspiciously for you and all is well out in Cali! Just wanted to shoot you a quick note with some excellent news - landed a tenure-track assistant professor gig in Fairfield University's Department of Communication, starting this September (will be defending my dissertation this summer at Penn). Couldn't be more psyched about and grateful for this opportunity - great Jesuit school, friendly department, excellent location near NYC and the very great David Gudelunas was the search chair - all good things...

Oh, and I think I owed you a photo from the wedding in October; if still interested, a few snaps here: http://www.channingjohnsonblog.com/2009/11/seaport-hotel-wedding/

Anthony Congi for a Good Cause

Hey guys,

Some of you have probably heard, for some this may be new, but I'm taking part in a Relay for Life event which benefits the American Cancer Society. "Dancing with the Idaho Falls Stars" is sure to make me look ridiculous, but it's for a great cause.

If you could help out the cause by donating any amount possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Here's the link:

Thanks in advance,
