Here was another chance for all college students to attend one of our "Careers in Broadcasting" evenings on a local campus. This one was at Temple University on Monday, November 14, 2005, from 6 to 8 pm. Over 100 students were there.

All students attended regardless of what school or university you were enrolled in. It all took place at the Joe First Media Center in Annenberg Hall on the northern end of Temple University's campus. The time was from 6 to 8 pm and admission was free.

The moderator was Karen Turner, Associate Professor of Journalism from Temple University.

Our panelists were:

Paul Perrello - News Director for Metro Networks in Philadelphia
Adam Joseph, WPVI-TV, Action News Meteorologist

We have complete audio of the event right here on our website. The entire evening runs over an hour and a half. We have encoded it as rolling audio. That is, the audio is divided into three equal segments. For DSL and Cable users, it should be fairly seamless. For those on dial-up, there may be several seconds pause between each segment. This is normal. We have done this so the audio will load faster. Listen to the entire event!

Here's some video clips of the evening. Note that this is encoded as Real Video Surestream. That is, the file has two different streams. One is for dial-up users and the other (which is much clearer) is for DSL and Cable users. Just click on the link and your computer will automatically choose the correct stream for your computer. Our Video Clips!
