SF Chronicle Editor-in-Chief to speak on campus
Ever since it was announced Pacific would host a debate amongst five of California’s U.S. senatorial candidates, there has been a noticeable air of excitement on campus.
Students are discussing the big event in classes, tickets for the debate are going fast and many noteworthy individuals in news, politics and media are on their way to Pacific as you read this.
One of those individuals is Audrey Cooper, editor-in-chief of one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the country, the San Francisco Chronicle, which is one of the lead sponsors of the senatorial debate.
Cooper was kind enough to agree to participate in a conversation with Pacific students, which will be held on Monday, April 25, just hours before the highly anticipated debate.
Entitled “New Voters, New Voices,” the event will focus on the topic of political reporting and will include valuable input from other local journalists in addition to Cooper.
Audrey Cooper took over the job of editor-in-chief early last year. She is the first woman to hold the position at the Chronicle since its inception in 1865. Cooper has been with the Chronicle since 2006 and previously spent time with the Stockton Record, the Associated Press and the Tri-Valley Herald.
In part, Cooper will discuss how many millennials state they are not interested in political news, despite these same young people consuming and producing political news in great amounts on social media.
The event will be held on Monday, April 25, from noon to 1:30 p.m in the Omega Phi Alpha Library at the Vereschagin Alumni House. Light refreshments will be served.
Those interested are encouraged to RVSP to Jennifer Torres Siders via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
