I'm sure you all remember the rookie reporter who dropped the F-bomb on the air in April of 2013 on his very first night of anchoring? Well that reporter, A.J. Clemente, was my former student at West Virginia University. Because of social media, his "blunder" went viral with nearly two million hits on YouTube alone. This panel explores how social media can make or break careers in the journalism field. Panelists will share tips and techniques of incorporating social media into their syllabi, classrooms and broadcasts; how to verify sources and information posted on social media sites and how to utilize social media tools to enhance reporting in this emerging new media paradigm.
