Fall National College Media Convention, Atlanta, GA

Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Association are excited to hold the Fall National College Media Convention in Atlanta. For full details on the event, please visit https://collegemediaconvention.org/

The first keynote will be Charles M. Blow, a columnist for The New York Times and best-selling author. Blow will speak 11:00 a.m. ET, Wednesday, November 1

A former college newspaper editor at Grambling State University, Blow has been a New York Times Opinion columnist since 2008. His column appears on Monday and Thursday. Blow writes about politics, culture, equality and justice, and he’s been the anchor of “Prime with Charles Blow” on the Black News Channel, as well as a CNN commentator.

Blow joined the Times in 1994 as a graphics editor and quickly became the paper’s graphics director, a position he had for nine years. In that role, he led The Times to a best of show award from the Society for News Design for The Times’s information graphics coverage of 9/11 — the first time the award was given for graphics coverage. He also led the paper to its first two best of show awards from the Malofiej Infographics World Summit, for work that included coverage of the Iraq war.
