The Drake School of Journalism and Mass Communications teaches students how to tell stories and over the years it has been filled with stories itself. In this podcast, Chris Snider and Taylor Vos talk to everyone, from current students to alumni to professors, to share their stories about the SJMC.
In this first season, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the School of Journalism. We will listen to stories of traditions and changes.
Join us every Wednesday as we open up the SJMC storybook and share some of those tales with you.
Allison Vancura joins Chris Snider and Taylor Vos to talk about her career working with the Meredith Corporation. Having graduated from the SMJC in 2011 with degrees in Magazine Journalism and Graphic Design, Allison has worked at Meredith for 9 years in multiple roles.
