Advisory boards to interview 2016-2017 leader applicants

NC State Student Media has scheduled interviews with those students who have applied for the top leadership positions at the Technician, the Nubian Message, WKNC 88.1 FM Raleigh, and the Student Business & Marketing Office for 2016-2017. 

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 Newspaper and Broadcast 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 to executive session.

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

• Newspapers Advisory Board – Monday, Feb. 22, 7:30 p.m., Witherspoon 324 (Student Media Conference Room) – Nubian Message Editor In Chief candidate: Stephanie Tate, sophomore, political science. (Note: This meeting was rescheduled from Monday, Feb. 15 due to inclement weather.)

• Newspapers Advisory Board – Wednesday, Feb. 24, 6 p.m., Witherspoon 324 (Student Media Conference Room) – Technician Editor In Chief candidates: Gabe DeCaro, junior, nuclear engineering and international relations; Mary Anna Rice, junior, English; and Rachel Smith, junior, design.

• Broadcast Advisory Board – Monday, Feb. 29, 7:30 p.m., Witherspoon 324 (Student Media Conference Room) – WKNC General Manager candidate: Emily Ehling, sophomore, women’s and gender studies.

After considering each candidate, the advisory boards will submit their recommendations to the full Student Media Board of Directors, which will make the final decision as to next year’s leaders. That meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, in Room 356 of the Witherspoon Student Center. (Room 356 is located in the African-American Cultural Center.)
