Redding's article published in peer-reviewed journal

University of Louisiana at Monroe student Robert "Rob" Redding, a speech communication major from Fayetteville, Ga., and a member of ULM’s award-winning Speech and Debate Team, is making quite a name for himself. His theory on competitive argumentation was published in a peer-reviewed communication publication.

Redding's "Resolution of Risk" has been published in “The Journal of the International Public Debate Association.”

"There have only been three ways to argue for hundreds of years," Redding said. "Propositions can be fact, value or policy. Resolution of risk analysis offers another option. I am grateful to IPDA's Journal for publishing my theory and thankful to IPDA for allowing me to present my paper to a packed room of attentive communicators from across the country."

IPDA's publication was distributed over the weekend at the organization's national debate tournament, which was held at Bossier Parish Community College.

Redding is also CEO of Redding Communications, Inc. and is an artist, award-winning nationally syndicated radio talk show host and journalist who authored "Hired Hatred: Why politicians, political parties and the political prejudices they tout are mutually exclusive from good government" in 2005. His upcoming book, which is a history of black philosophers, has been referenced in "Disciplinary Decadence: Living Thought in Trying Times" by Lewis R. Gordon, who is director of the Institute for the Study of Race and Social Thought at Temple University.

RCI owns the award-winning Redding News Review - a Web site and radio show, and The more than decade-old Atlanta-based media company has an audience of more than 500,000 readers annually and reaches more than 100,000 listeners through radio, podcasting and XM weekly.

His radio show is heard locally on KMLB Talk 540.
