Hey, folks!

SPJ is proud to host former broadcast Journalist and anchor with KCPQ-TV — now PR Professional — Derek Wing!

He will talk about his life as a young TV reporter, being on the first team from Norfolk, Virginia with a large military base to send a live broadcast from Baghdad back to the US.

Wing will also discuss being the only Asian American man to host his own show consistently (until recently), and the challenges / sucesses of being Asian American in the mass media.

It will be approximately 30 minutes presentation, and 30 minutes Q&A [or a little longer if needed].

THERE WILL BE DESSERT!

If you want onto our list serv, please let us know via spjuw@uw.edu. We will also have a sign up sheet at the event.

CMU is the Department of Communication, University of Washington building on the Seattle campus. It is wheelchair accessible through the elevator on the left, Stevens Way side of the building.

Please help us make sure this is a scent-free zone and limit perfume / cologne use.

We would like to recognize that the UW sits on what was originally Duwamish tribal land, a tribe that continues to go unrecognized by our federal government.

We hope to see all of you there!
