Mark your calendars for the next meeting of the Charlotte Pro Chapter of Society of Professional Journalists. It’s at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14, at Leroy Fox Restaurant, 705 S. Sharon Amity Road, Charlotte.
We’re having “A Conversation with Mike Hogewood.” Mike is currently an assistant professor of journalism at Catawba College in Salisbury. But many of you, especially if you’re college basketball fans, will remember him from a long career as a broadcaster covering sports in the Carolinas.
For many years, Mike was sports director of WFMY-TV in his hometown of Greensboro and he has also done work for Raycom (the old Jefferson Pilot Co.), Fox Sports South, the New England Sports Network, the Speed Channel and the Nashville Network.
Come prepared for a conversation about the state of broadcast sports coverage and maybe even a little about journalism education. And bring a colleague or two for a night of networking, food and fellowship.
You’ll also get an update on next month’s 2015 Outstanding Journalism Awards program. Hope to see you there.
– Keith Cannon, President
