On Sunday, June 28, 2015, The Los Angeles Press Club nominated over 50 pieces of USC Annenberg student media and honored Director Willow Bay with the Joseph M. Quinn Award.
Willow Bay, this year’s recipient of the LA Press Club’s Lifetime Achievement Award, always wanted to be a journalist — it’s just that life took a few detours first.
Willow Bay, director of the USC Annenberg School of Journalism, has been chosen by the Los Angeles Press Club to receive its highest honor, the Joseph M. Quinn Award for Lifetime Achievement.
The Los Angeles Press Club recently announced the finalists for the 57th SoCal Journalism Awards 2015, and USC Annenberg's student outlets have a total of 55 nominations. Their nominations are so expansive, in some categories USC Annenberg students are competing against one another.
A new video from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism features a cross-section of leading editors, writers and executives discussing why investigative journalism is so vital and necessary — and what would happen if the field didn’t exist.
Longtime communication professor Peter Monge has been named USC’s top mentor of 2015 by USC Provost Michael Quick. He is the second USC Annenberg professor to earn this distinction in recent years.
