Goodman at Tinker Tour

First the Tinker Tour came to Kent State.  Now Kent State has joined the Tinker Tour.

The School of Journalism and Mass Communication (JMC) at Kent State University has hired Thor Wasbotten, M.S., as its new director. Wasbotten will join the university July 1 to replace Jeff Fruit, who steps down after 10 years as the school’s leader to teach full time.
