Thanks for stopping by to visit my page. This is the jumping-off point for students in my classes, home of information about my courses, projects and writings, and repository for all sorts of personal stuff of dubious value.

I am a former newspaper writer and editor, and received my Ph.D. from the Institute of Communications Research at the University of Illinois in October 1995. For more information on me and my interests (but why would you want it?), click here


  • As far as I know, we are scheduled to be back on campus for Fall 2021, so I'm preparing with that in mind.  The situation is fluid, however, and could change at any time.    If you need to talk with me about coming back to campus as it relates to my classes or the Spartan Daily, please email me. 

  • My most recent book, Navigating the News: A Guide to Understanding Journalism, is available from Peter Lang Publishing! For more information about the book, click here. To order a copy from Amazon, click here.

These pages and links may not be your idea of fun, but it's not your page, is it? Among other things, you can stop in and rearrange my face.
