Susan Wornick “Susan Wornick: A Life in Broadcasting”

One of Boston's most engaging anchors and reporters, Susan Wornick spent 34 years at Boston's number one television station, WCVB-TV. She rose from street reporter, to investigative and consumer reporter winning a cache of awards along the way. Susan's commitment to keeping her sources almost landed her in jail. The veteran reporter, now retired, will talk about the issue of a Shield Law for journalists, the non-stop 24-hour news cycle, how technology has changed broadcast and all media, and what careers will look like for aspiring journalists as we move deeper into the 21st Century. Co-sponsored by the UMass Lowell Center for Arts and Ideas. The program begins at 11:45 a.m. with a light buffet lunch. Reservations are required (seating is limited).
