CoBE faculty and staff have always known our College is a jewel in the UW-System. Our challenge is to share our excellent reputation with others outside of the region. To this end, we are very excited to announce the hiring of our new media specialist, Jon Kelley. Jon is a former graduate of UW-Whitewater’s Communication Department where he was active in contributing to the campus television station both as an undergraduate and graduate student. His work experience includes producing professional media for CBS, 20th Century Fox and other broadcast stations.
With Jon’s leadership, we have expanded our media in the following areas:
PBS University Place: PBS University Place is a streaming digital collection of instructional videos from university and community events. The CoBE Media Team has submitted four new videos to University Place for November:
- Scott Gittrich: Topper’s Pizza Founder Talk Entrepreneurship
- Steve Kaplan: Millionaire Steve Kaplan on Entrepreneurship
- Paul Sara: Real World Ethics
- Kelly Fitzsimmons: Importance of Personal Integrity
Please check out our videos at http://wpt.org/programs/university-place. Go to the “Filter Categories” section in the middle of the page and choose the UW-Whitewater campus.
UWW-TV Spotlights: UWW-TV’s cable channel has been kind enough to include some of the prominent CoBE lectures in their scheduled entertainment package. You can view the schedule of upcoming CoBE lectures on UWW-TV at http://uwwtv.org/?page_id=3386.
CoBE You Tube: The CoBE YouTube web site content is growing. Several information and marketing media segments provide useful information to outside viewers. Our new “This Week In CoBE” and “Ask The Expert” media series are helping to keep our main CoBE web site fresh with new content. The consistent placement of new information produces increased viewing by our past, current, and future College stakeholders.
The entire CoBE Team is excited about our future in media. Please let us know if you have any media ideas to help us promote the CoBE brand throughout the globe.
