About the Event

The State of Broadcasting: From Academics to the Workplace

Featured Guest Speakers: Moderator Lisa Roberts Cadorette, Communications, Marketing, & Development Specialist and Sean McDonald, Director of Neumann Media at Neumann University

The Delaware County Press Club's January event is virtual and it's FREE for paid members.

In this webinar, we'll discuss how standards changed instantly on March 13, 2020; what new technologies emerged and what "old" technologies/equipment are now being utilized in new ways; how safety and social distancing protocols have been put in place both in academia, as well as, in the workplace; how the student experience has changed both in the classroom and regarding internship experiences; and what's in the pipeline – will some of these new/revised practices become the new norm?

About our speaker:

Sean McDonald is an educator and the Director of Neumann Media at Neumann University, overseeing television and the FCC-licensed radio station 98.5 WNUW-LP.

Sean began his career in Philadelphia in 2007 as an intern in the engineering department of Greater Media Philadelphia (now Beasley Media Group) and its stations 93.3 WMMR, 102.9 WMGK, 95.7 BEN-FM, 97.5 The Fanatic, and recently 92.5 WXTU. Sean quickly was hired after 3 months of interning to become a remote broadcast engineer, producing live radio shows on location at local establishments and concerts at the various venues around the Tri-State area. He became the producer of Andre Gardner's Hometown of the Week Broadcast, while also becoming the Radio Coordinator at Neumann University. Sean quickly expanded the possibilities for Communications at Neumann when he took over the student publication, The Joust, and the television studio (NeuTube), and formed a media group called Neumann Media. In 2015, Sean was instrumental in getting Neumann Radio onto the FM dial as the newly minted 98.5 WNUW. He and his students have celebrated recognition of their work with two visits to the White House; multiple recognitions with College Radio Day and the College Radio Foundation; a student Emmy award; and multiple national awards from College Broadcasters Inc.

Sean's passion for Student Media has led him to serve as President of College Radio Day, and present at national student broadcasting conferences and workshops. He believes that students are the future of media, and is a passionate teacher in the Communication and Digital Media program at Neumann University, as well as a regular presenter on the national college media stage. Sean lives in West Chester, PA with his high school sweetheart Janine, and their two boys Caden and Andrew.
