Hello Com 206
Professor Lew Wheaton has invited his Com 206 class at Bergen Community College to view recent posts on Radio Boutros. I will take this moment to say welcome and explain a little bit about radio Boutros.
This blog was started as a classroom tool for my classes at Brooklyn College. I didn’t expect to blog, but it became helpful to blog about some of the topics we discussed in the classroom. So when we discussed the importance of having a beat, I thought it would be interesting to report on the community-based blog.
Since this blog is hardly older than a weeing pup there are only a few posts. But this is changing and the blog is growing. I invite Professor Wheaton, the students of Com 206 and “citizen journalists” everywhere to join in on the fun.
By the way, I hate the term citizen journalism. It seems that I’m not the only one it irks. Even for citizen journalism evangalists like Jarvis “networked journalism” is the new phrase de jour. I feel a future blog post in the works…
