Whitaker photo Since 1980, CNN has been a leader in news innovation. As the first television network to offer 24-hour news, CNN helped to transform not only news delivery but also viewers’ expectations.

But the hunger for information has only grown. Now, consumers want their news to be instant, mobile and interactive.

As a result, CNN is forced to redefine itself in the television and digital news realms. CNN Worldwide’s vice president and managing editor Mark Whitaker is facing that challenge on a daily basis.

Whitaker, who joined CNN Worldwide in 2011, will share his experiences and expertise with students at “West Virginia University”: on Monday, Nov. 14. His presentation, “Covering the World 24/7: CNN’s Role in a Changing Media Industry,” is sponsored by the P.I. Reed School of Journalism’s Emory “Pete” Sasser Lectureship in Journalism. WVU’s Center for Black Culture and Research is also sponsoring the event. The public lecture will be at 7:30 p.m. in 202 Brooks Hall.

In his current role at CNN, Whitaker is responsible for leading editorial coverage across CNN’s multiple platforms and directing the overall approach, tone and scope of CNN’s reporting.

Prior to joining CNN, Whitaker served as senior vice president and Washington bureau chief for NBC News, succeeding the late Tim Russert. In that role, he was responsible for Washington-based programming for NBC and MSNBC, including “Meet the Press” and the network’s political coverage.

Before joining NBC in May 2007, Whitaker was vice president and editor-in-chief of new ventures in the digital division of The Washington Post Company. He was editor of Newsweek from 1998 to 2006, during which time the magazine won more top editorial awards and nominations than at any other time in its history, including four National Magazine Awards for coverage of the attacks of September 11, the Iraq War, the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the 2004 elections. As editor, Whitaker redesigned Newsweek to emphasize in-depth reporting and diversified opinion columns.

Whitaker joined Newsweek in 1981 and wrote and reported for the International section, covering such major stories as the conflicts in Central America, the Soviet Union and the Middle East. He served as business editor from 1987 to 1991, directing coverage of stories including the stock-market crash and the S&L crisis.

In addition to his work in the newsroom, Whitaker is also an author. His book, “My Long Trip Home: A Family Memoir,” was released this month. Whitaker will have a book sale and signing immediately following his presentation.

Sabrina and Summer Student journalist Zhao Hong finds it easier to do her class projects at West Virginia University than at her university back home in China.

“As a student majoring in journalism, it’s easier to interview people in the U.S.,” said Hong. “If you are a student doing homework in China, people ignore you. They don’t want to talk to you unless you have an I.D. that says where you work.”

Students from WVU’s P.I. Reed School of Journalism and the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies in Guangzhou, China, will recognize many differences—and similarities—between their schools as they participate in a newly established exchange program.

The five-year agreement between WVU and Guangdong University of Foreign Studies will give five School of Journalism students the opportunity to study alongside their Chinese peers at Guangdong University’s School of Journalism and Communication. In exchange, five students from China will study at WVU’s School of Journalism.

WVU School of Journalism Dean Maryanne Reed said the partnership will help better prepare students to live and work in a global society.

“As part of the University’s strategic vision, our students need to be exposed to a variety of cultures on an international level,” said Reed.

“The relationship with Guangdong University is a natural fit – given the growing role of China in the global economy and the expertise of our faculty. In addition, Guangdong has a top communications program that can add value to our students and curriculum.”

Visiting Shott Chair of Journalism Lois Raimondo helped facilitate the agreement with Guangdong University. Raimondo has lived, studied and worked in China.

She said Guangdong University’s extensive English language curriculum and opportunities for professional internships will give WVU students a comparative perspective on media in other cultures.

“As a journalist, it’s important to be able to step outside of yourself and experience other people’s perspectives,” said Raimondo. “When you travel, you learn about the relativity of your own cultural truths.”

Two students from Guangdong University are studying at WVU and the School of Journalism during the 2011-2012 academic year. Hong and Zicheng Gao are both juniors and are taking a variety of courses, including principles of advertising, introduction to public relations, introduction to photography and media writing.

WVU students who are interested in participating in the exchange program to Guangdong University should see their School of Journalism advisor and the Office of International Programs.
