Bloomington, Ind – WIUX news directors D’Angelo King and Justice Eiden are leading the “Voices of IU: Student Media Conference” at the IU Media School in Franklin Hall on Thursday, August 24th from 4:30 until 9 PM. The event was conceived by King and Eiden as a way for the Media School to profile the various student media organizations that the School has to offer.
The conference will include faculty-moderated panels, student-run workshops, live musical performances as a part of WIUX’s “Live in the Living Room” sessions, refreshments, as well as tables where approximately a dozen student media organizations will provide info on their groups. Topics of the panels include “Fake News,” “Women in Media,” “Sports Media,” and more. Each panel will be moderated by an IU professor, with students as panelists.
The event will utilize the WIUX, Indiana Daily Student, and IUSTV’s workspaces, in addition to the Media School’s commons and classrooms.
