SUNY Oswego’s School of Communication, Media and the Arts hosts the Dr. Lewis B. O’Donnell Media Summit each fall. It’s a day-long event that welcomes media professionals to campus for engaging conversations about timely, important topics facing media industries and media consumers. The Media Summit was founded in 2005 by Lou Borrelli ’77 and Al Roker ’76. It is named in memory of their beloved professor, the late Dr. Lewis B. O’ Donnell.
The 14th Lewis B. O’Donnell Media Summit will take place Wednesday, Oct. 17 on the SUNY Oswego campus. This year’s theme “Viral Voices: Advocacy in the Digital Age” is aiming to showcase how advocacy has evolved through the digital age as one of the world’s most common methods of starting movements and making a change. The 14th Annual Media Summit plans to highlight these movements and showcase what it truly means to make change happen from your phone screen.
The Media Summit is made possible by SUNY Oswego and SUNY Oswego’s School of Communication, Media, and the Arts.
