To say we’ve got star power lined up for our 2014 High School Journalism Workshop is an understatement. Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page (BSJ ’69) and Deadspin’s Tim Burke (BSJ ’99) both have announced that they will be part of the teaching staff for our annual workshop, scheduled for July 9-12.
Burke, recently profiled in The New York Times, was just back on campus to talk with freshmen in JOUR 1010. He also sat down for an extended interview about his coverage of the Manti Te’o “fake girlfriend” story at Deadspin.
Page, a multiple Pulitzer Prize winner, studied journalism at Ohio University in the late 1960’s before going on to join the Tribune right after graduation. I conducted this interview with him in his Washington DC office.
