Elizabeth O’Connell, the executive producer for wireless and radio at NBC News, will be the featured speaker at the 2013 Charles and Elaine Sherman Lecture on Thursday, Oct. 3.
The event will be held in Mitten Hall’s Great Court at 3:30 p.m. A reception will follow.
A 32-year NBC veteran, O’Connell began her career while still in college as an intern on the assignment desk at WBZ in Boston, rising to become one of the first female executive producers both at NBC and in television news. She will be interviewed by Jean Chatsky, financial editor for NBC Today, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
The Sherman Lecture was founded by the Shermans to benefit School of Media and Communication students and to encourage an ongoing dialogue about broadcasting, cable and satellite in a free society.
