Covering trauma – a tragic accident, a horrendous attack, a sickening court case, a catastrophic weather event – exposes journalists and victims to complicated questions about ethics, privacy and responsibility. This year’s Poynter Kent State Media Ethics Workshop will delve into significant topics including re-victimization, extreme crisis communication, campus sexual assault and the impacts of social media on trauma incidents and victims.

Bob West passed away on the morning of June 20, 2015. He recently celebrated his 89th birthday, where he was surrounded by friends and family. 

Bob was a dedicated professor who spent his life studying film and teaching students about its many genres. He always had time to chat and offer advice and suggestions on what to watch (and when you shouldn’t waste your time!). A finalist for the Kent State Distinguished Teaching Award, Bob’s legacy to JMC will live on, along with his history as a legend in Cleveland/Akron area broadcasting.

This is the first commemorative week of its kind at Kent State.
