Graduates Ready for Digital Media ?

Do college graduates, especially those looking to get into TV, Radio and Newspaper, have the basic digital skills to succeed? We know of far too many journalism students that don’t even know what WordPress is. Many don’t even have a Linked-in profile that’s not chock full of typos and empty spaces.

On the other hand, most college grads have totally sweet Facebook pages.

Take a look at this collection of video clips from 2008. I moderated an expert panel of media execs for students of Drexel University in Philadelphia. Have things changed for the better since then?

Featured on this Philly panel is Jim McGuinn from WXPN & Y-100 radio, Dan Pohlig of WHYY radio, and Gil Edwards from WYSP radio and Red Lasso.
