Our guests/hosts this week

On Jan. 16 and 18, we will be visiting with a number of folks to get an overview of your topic areas and a sense of the significant issues at play here. This will be a series of conversations to help you develop story ideas and get your feet wet on your beats. Please read over the bios linked here, Google these folks and research them in Factiva and Lexis-Nexis, and, prior to class on Wednesday, send me a list of three questions you have for the individual in your topic area about his or her career, potential stories that you might be considering, or anything else in your/his/her area.

On Wednesday:

David Barbe, director of UGA’s Music Business program in the Terry College and a producer of many of your favorite bands

Mitch Gartenberg, director of campus recreation and the Ramsey Center

Ben Beaty, assistant director of sports communication and primary gymnastics contact

On Friday:

Brian Brodrick, principal, Jackson-Spalding

Denise Spangler, professor and department head in Mathematics Education; also a board member of the Clarke County School District

Anisa Sullivan Jiminez, director of public relations for Clarke County Schools
