Every year since 1999, the School of Media and Journalism at UNC has hosted the Park Lecture Series. This year Fox News anchor Chris Wallace gave the lecture over Skype.
The first topic Wallace discussed was the current state of journalism.
“The whole structure of journalism has just changed completely,” he said. “It was a very small world. There was a very straightforward path in journalism, but that has changed completely. It’s a more democratic system; there’s more variety in the system.”
Sophomore Sean Kurz, a global studies and journalism major, said he was especially interested in the observations Wallace made about how journalism is changing.
“I think it is very important for college students, especially at a school with such a dominant media and journalism program, to pay close attention to the fact that this career of providing information to different publics is constantly changing,” he said.
