At 12 p.m. on Wednesday, November 17, tune in for a continuation of the College of Arts & Sciences Dean’s Series, where Dr. Greenwald will moderate a discussion with special guests alumnus Robert Murphy ’71, vice president of Administration for ABC News, and President of CT Broadcasting Mark Contreras.

"I’m so excited that we are continuing this series to showcase the enduring value of an arts and sciences education," said Dr. Greenwald. "Our alumni are leaders in their fields who remain connected to our University."

At ABC News, part of The ABC Television Network and The Walt Disney Company, Murphy played key roles in the re-launch of Nightline and the political coverage of the 2008 and 2012 elections. He is based in New York and reports to ABC News President James Goldston.

Contreras has led several media businesses through digital transformation at CT Broadcasting. Prior to his role as dean of the School of Communications at Quinnipiac University, Contreras served as CEO of Calkins Media, a privately held media company, which developed innovative strategies to maximize audience reach, engagement, and revenue by embracing streaming media platforms such as Roku, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV. The strategy also included providing journalists with new digital video tools and creating more locally focused content.

These communications experts will share insights concerning business models, distribution, and the shift from linear broadcasting to broadband and streaming; editorial credibility, including discussing the history of media and the changes in journalistic quality over time; and the direct and indirect impact and issues of democracy and media.
