Fall 2012 was my last teaching
semester at Lehigh University after more than 34 years of service,
including a decade as chairman of the Department of Journalism
and Communication. I retired in 2013. I joined the faculty in 1978 after having been
a reporter for The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch newspaper.
Starting in 1979, I also worked
part-time as an editor for The Morning Call, an Allentown newspaper
now owned by Tribune Publishing. In December 2015, I also retired
from The Morning Call.
These days, I'm enjoying retirement
with my grandchildren and trying to stay active by walking, hiking
and kayaking. I'm on Facebook
if you want to connect with me, and you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
