Interviews set for 2017-2018 media leader candidates

NC State Student Media has scheduled interviews with students who have applied for the top leadership positions at the Technician, WKNC-FM, the Nubian Message, Windhover, Agromeck and the Student Business & Marketing Office.

These interviews are open to the public, and we encourage anyone with an interest in our organizations to attend.

The students will be interviewed by members of Student Media’s Newspapers, Broadcast, Annual Publications and Business Office advisory boards, which include students, faculty, staff and industry professionals. There will be time set aside for questions and comments from the public before the advisory board members adjourn into executive session.

The dates and times for the advisory board meetings are as follows:

Technician Editor candidates – Thursday, Feb. 16, 6 p.m., Student Media offices (third floor, Witherspoon Student Center) – Candidates: Kai Anthony, junior, communication; Jonathan Carter, sophomore, political science; Aditi Dholakia, junior, German studies/communication.
