College of Communication Hosts LatinoUSA's Quiz the Media Event

LatinoUSA's “Quiz the Media”, teamed journalism and media students from three Chicago schools to pose questions to a group of outstanding journalists. The journalists—Maria Hinojosa (Latino USA), John Quinones (ABC), Fernando Diaz (Hoy Chicago), and Chris Bury (Al Jazeera and PBS)—answered the students’ questions based on their experience in major news outlets, start-up editing rooms, reporting from war zones, launching media companies, and being part of newsrooms in Chicago and across the country. The student inquiry process drove a dynamic town hall discussion about real news and issues in journalism today, and invited audience participation.

Participating schools were: DePaul University, College of Communication, Columbia College Chicago, Journalism Department, and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

This event took place on April 16, 2014.
