Guest Speaker Today - Feb. 26

Class, we have scheduled a guest speaker today. He is Gustavo Gonzalez, a media and human resources consultant for the Associated Press. Mr. Gonzalez recently retired as director of human resources for the San Antonio Express-News and he continues to work in the industry, travelling nationwide to give seminars for AP related industries. Mr. Gonzalez is a retired U.S. Air Force colonel with much experience in human relationships. His career in the newspaper industry has given him a keen insight to what is happening to print journalism today. Please take this opportunity to listen to what should be a very interesting talk on the state of print media. He will detail what young and aspiring journalists must do to secure a job in today's very tight job market and how some old dogs like him have been able to survive some unavoidable changes in the industry. Mr. Gonzalez attended TAMUK and has a bachelor's degree from the University of Texas-Pan American. He is an award winning college journalist for TAMUK. He has many professional and military awards which would be too many to mention. Please be in class early so that we can start the lecture (I will be lecturing on Chapter 7, briefly) and then devote our night to Mr. Gonzalez. See you soon.
Dr. Manuel Flores
