The Mississippi Association of Broadcasters Day will give selected students the opportunity to engage in one-on-one portfolio reviews with media professionals in the broadcasting, production and advertising fields.

“This is an excellent opportunity for students to receive honest critiques from professionals,” said Mary Lou Sheffer, associate professor in the Southern Miss School of Mass Communication and Journalism and the organizer of this year’s MAB Day. “This event will allow students to network and gain professionals’ insight regarding their fields of study.”

The general public is encouraged to attend and participate in a panel discussion scheduled from 1 -2:30 p.m. at the Thad Cochran Center, located on the Hattiesburg campus.
