ULM Professor is 2005 RTNDF Educator Fellow

The Radio and Television News Directors Foundation has named Robert E. Lewis, assistant professor in the Department of Mass Communications at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, a 2005 Educator in the Newsroom Fellow. His host station is KHOU-TV in Houston, Texas.

Now in its sixth year, Educator in the Newsroom Fellowships place broadcast journalism professors in radio or television newsrooms for a month-long work experience each summer. Educators get hands-on experience and training in current practices, new technologies, and issues confronting today's journalists. News managers benefit from fresh perspectives on daily newsroom practices and act as an extra set of knowledgeable eyes, ears and hands during the summer.

Robert Lewis and a host of others were chosen to participate from all over the country.
